    Your degree is not particularly important. There are probably schools who might think that it is interesting, but I don't think it makes you particularly unique from the other science prememds.

    However, your grades in premed reqirements (prereqs) are significant and every C is a nail in your potential medical career's coffin. Perhaps a stellar MCAT will level things out for you.

    Good luck.

    I have to agree that every C is a POTENTIAL "nail in the coffin" but don't let it scare you off if you happen to get a few!

    I made C's in Organic yet I've already gone to 2 interviews and have 2 more scheduled (and haven't heard from my last 3 schools).

    The point is that you DON'T want to get them if you can help it, but if you do, try to take other, similar courses (ie: biochem,etc) to prove that you CAN handle the load! Keep trying and you'll get there!

    Good Luck!
