Ok Im looking for some advice from current medical students (MD and DO) and what you think of my situation. Sorry if its a bit long... Im currently a sophmore in college who switched from a good PA program to a Biology/Premed program. My grades freshman year were pretty good (3.5) and Im looking to maintain/improve that this year. Im currently taking ochem, comparative anatomy,calculus, and some other general classes. Right now were coming up on finals week and my grades are looking pretty good (A's and B's) but I just found out that i'll probably be getting a C in anatomy lab. I know its only one credit, but how much is that going to affect me? I heard that ochem was terrible, but im looking at the possibility of pulling out an A in the class, but I just couldnt get anatomy lab and it didnt seem as if the studying paid off. Is this a sign that I wont be able to handle medical school? Or will this affect my chances of getting into medical school and will taking it again help? Right now, if everything went perfect for finals, my GPA this semester would be about 3.7, but realistically it will probably be around a 3.5. Will a 3.5 be competitve for med school with that C? I also run cross country/track and field for my school and was wondering if that will be any benefit at all when applying? Are there any current MD or DO students that had a similar situation? I know its a lot of questions, but any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
