So I'm a non-trad premed (though my family for some generations has been involved in professional medicine). I'm not doing a 'post-bacc' program like many of you are in the sense, however, I'm basically pursuing another degree to prove to med schools and myself that I have to what it takes to compete. So my question is, how does AMCAS work the grades from my previous degree and my current degree? (My previous degree was a rollercoaster with quite a few deficiencies, 7 F's total, with all of them made up) Do they basically clump the grades of both degrees together? Of course I know what I need to get done to try and make myself competitive and am involved in some good EC's (I have a very good job in the ER that provides awsome clinical exposure, volunteer at several hospitals, and have a great neuro research internship this summer), however, the problems that I've had in my previous degree just keep looming over my head in terms of my chances in US med schools. What's worse is that they weren't related to my intelligence, but to my depression (****ty excuse) and lack of direction in life. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated in figuring out what I can do to make myself standout (how clichè).
