  1. Pre-Medical
I've been majoring in health sciences and had no plans on going to med school after I graduate, but I recently became interested and am now a pre-med student. The problem is that I didn't take some classes as seriously as I should have in the past, since all I wanted was a bachelors, and I also need to take Ochem, physics, and calc, on top of my core classes for my major. Retaking the classes I got a C on and taking all the classes I still need to take, I may end up graduating when I'm 6-7 years into college. Will med schools look down on this? Do they see that you had to retake classes and bring your application down?

they wont look down upon it if you explain why you changed your mind and it is a good reason this can be explained in the personal statement
