Hey there, there is something that has been bugging me for a long while. I am pre-med at Northwestern University, and last quarter I have taken just one science course that is NOT part of the pre-med curriculum. I had a very bad quarter because I had a death in the family and was also improperly placed into a course that took up all of my time (Which I luckily dropped). So my grades were an A-, B, and B-. Unfortunately my B- was in Astronomy 101, which I learned will feed into my BCPM GPA. I learned that students are able to retake courses, which the grade out of the two courses will be averaged and it will state that I retook the course. I was wondering if I should retake the course next year so I can pull that up. I feel that a 2.7 is killing my BCPM GPA... But I also wonder if it would look bad to medical schools if I retook the course? I also think that I have a good opportunity to raise my grades since I'm a late-starting non-traditional student and have yet to take all my core sciences! But nonetheless, the 2.7 really hurts and I do not know whether to let it go or do something about it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
