    Hi,
    Is physics really that important for med school? I hear a lot of people with problems in ochem, but never in physics. I got a C in calculus-based physics but then took algebra-based physics and got an A-. I just took a lower physics second time because I wanted to have a good foundation. I never took it in high school. Anyway, if everything else is good, does that C ruin my chances for a school like Boston University? I'm so worried. I have anxiety all the time.:(

      Since Calculus isn't required to do well on the Physics portion of the MCAT, and the second Physics grade redeemed the first, you won't be handicapped in the application process. Specifically for BU: Calculus isn't on their list of requirements, so I see no reason they won't take you if the rest of your application matches what they're looking for.

        Thank you Catalystik for taking the time to answer me. That makes me feel a lot better.

          Your credits are listed year by year on the summary page with GPA. Your transcript lists courses by year and semester. They probably aren't going to microanalyze your courseload vs your degree of involvement in activities unless there's a concern for some reason. Examples might be: Taking longer or less time than usual to graduate. A year of poor grades. A lot of Ws. Working full-time during the school year.
