Nobody has really been able to assess my situation for me... I started out as a business major. I was not motivated by my classes, I hated the subject, but it took me two years for me to come to my senses. So my grades for classes like Economics, Management, Computer Sciences etc. were mainly C's. I barely scraped by. After I realized that I wanted to pursue a degree in Neuroscience, things changed for me. I started to buckle down, and my science grades were actually quite solid. Most of my science grades range from B+, A-, A. One or two B's in there. Now, I know that medical schools will look both at my overall GPA and my science GPA. My question is: 1. Will my poor GPA from non-science classes greatly hurt my chances of getting into a U.S. allopathic school? 2. What can I do to improve my grades in those non-science classes? From what I've been reading, post-bac programs are mainly geared towards students who had poor science GPA's, not poor humanities GPA's. So, what are my options (if any) to improve those grades? Can I retake some of those Econ, philosophy, business classes at a community college? Is that a viable option? In my opinion, this is what is going to give an admissions office a hard time. Though I'm sure they will give me points for a stronger science GPA, and improving my overall GPA with time, I still fear that I will not make the initial cut because my overall GPA is not very competitive. Any advice at all would be very much appreciated. Happy holidays to you all!
