OK, i know some people made a post similar to this but here I go with my case My biggest fear for applying to pharm school in 2005 is my GPA. I am going to graduate from UC Davis this spring and will attend a JC for a full year starting this Fall to finish some science pre-req's. However, I received C's and C+'s in the following classes a year ago at UC Davis (which is a quarterly system btw): -Chem 2A (got a C) -Chem 2B (got a C) -Bio 1A (got a C+) -Bio 1B (got a C+) I got B's in Chem 2C and Bio 1C so I am fine with those. I'm also doing pretty well in o-chem too. Anyways, what is everyone's opinion on retaking the chemistry and Bio classes I got C's in at a JC this Fall. Basically, does the adcomm even care if I retake those classes or will it be too little too late? I know Pharmcas will average out the 2 grades in the GPA if I do retake them, but when schools look at the transcripts, they will see hopefully new A's "replacing" those ugly C's. So in everyones opinion, should I just retake chem. I and Bio I at the JC or should I just let it go? FYI, all those pre-req's I got C's in happened early in my "science career". I got those early on and recently, I haven't received anything lower than a B-. I guess I am showing constant improvement (which I hear is good). So my idea is to end my science classes with all A's and a few B's. Also on a side note, if I were to retake gen. chem I at a JC (semester sys.) how will it blend in with my gen chem classes from UCD (quarter system). basically at a JC, it's Chem I and Chem II while at UCD it's chem 2A, 2B, 2C. OK, sorry for the long post. Thanks for reading.
