If that's your only C, no. Some medical schools like to see that you have taken at least a semester/quarter/trimester of calc. If you're truly worried about it. Take it over again or take a calc course. Some find calc easier than algebra.studentinterest said:

Nope, some medical schools don't require math at all, but deem it a "highly recommended" course. And yes, engineering calc is loads of funRobizzle said:u mean calc ain't a premed requirement? I had to take it as an ENG requirement so i have no idea lol.
i'd say calc and alg. are very different BUT calculus requires a lot of algebra concepts that should become second nature after a lot of practice.

Not specifically, but it sounds like you are getting off to a bad start and things are going to get a lot tougher. There are thousands of threads on this site about people who screwed up their freshman/sophmore year and are fighting to make up for it. If you are serious about medicine, THIS SHOULD BE YOUR WAKE UP CALL. Identify/understand/correct this issue now or else you will be praying for miracles when the time comes to apply for medical school.studentinterest said:
