Edit: 2 questions...bad grades, and gunner friends... I know this question has probably been asked a thousand times before, but I have a slight variation on the question of whether preclinical grades matter. Will anyone later on (admissions people for residency, etc) ever take out my preclinical transcript and ask me specifically about a class that I did somewhat badly in compared to my other grades? Not sure if that makes sense...basically, I just made the mistake of trying to tough it out and take a final exam with a raging migraine (which has persisted for most of my studying time too, but I hadn't taken an exam with one before). Bad idea. Knew the material OK, at least I thought...long story short, don't think I did well at all. Fortunately I've been getting good grades so far...and I know clinical grades, board scores, etc matter much more anyway...I guess I'm just looking for a little reassurance. I'd rather not have to explain this grade later on... At least I'm pretty sure I passed (unless the vertigo caused me to mis-bubble an entire row or something, which is possible!), so that's helpful...but now I have to go study for another exam for which I'm underprepared and undermedicated (sorry, was doing OK til now, just having a little pity party).
