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:
u mean calc ain't a premed requirement? I had to take it as an ENG requirement so i have no idea lol.HemaOncoDoc said:If that's your only C, no.

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.
A C in any math class probably isn't detrimental to your pre-med journey in terms of grades, but I would say it is a sign that you better get your act together. Yes, a few med schools don't require math, most do, while some may actually require calculus. Others may go as far as require statistics as a pre-req or as an actual class taken as a medical student.studentinterest said:
thats not hard to believe, all you need to do is blindly remember some formulas and youve got itHemaOncoDoc said:I have friends who couldn't pass an algebra test, but were able to differentiate as if their future medical school careers were on the line...
cal I is very different from algebra.hellodoc said:Is calculus more difficult the algebra in people's opinions?
is your calc 3 multivariable or differential equations?vincikai said:cal I is very different from algebra.
cal II is = algebra+ cal I
cal III is alittle cal II and alots lots of proofs so far to me anyway
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:
