Took 2 pass/fail grades (covid related) and 2 A's during the first semester of post bacc.
Schedule for 5 courses (17 credits) next semester, is this enough to overlook the 2 p/f grades? Will I need another semester of post bacc classes? Hoping to apply 2021 cycle

Current cgpa w/o pb classes: 3.1
Current sgpa w/o pb classes: 3.1
remedying 16 withdrawals, no upward trend, and overall poor undergrad performance. @Goro

@Goro no this will not suffice. You can only get so much slack with covid-19. You NEED to show us that you can handle med school, and getting P's doesn't do that.


But what's worse is that you were getting B minuses in your post BAC work. That is telegraphing that you're not going to be able to handle medical school.


In other words if you don't improve massively, you are failing your audition

It's time to call it quits then and pursue another path that isn't medicine regardless of the outcome of next semester? As I cannot afford another semester let alone another year.

Your call. Best to work for a few years and save up money, and then go in full time for schooling, preferably at an SMP.

Would 30 credits spread over the course of next semester and fall 2021 suffice? SMP's are really expensive.

Thank you for your time and input, I appreciate it.
