    Do most (or any) Universities have any sympathy to those who might have had a bad freshman year? My GPA isn't superb but this past year it was maintained at 3.8.

    If anyone knows about this with the UC's I'd appreciate it, I certainly wouldn't want to waste my money.

    Your overall GPA will be of central concern to the medical schools. If you show some improvement over time, that's good too. And a good MCAT can make up for a whole lot of GPA problems.

    If you had a bad freshman year, but show significant, continued improvement after that, and have strong MCAT's, you will be fine. I applied last year, and it wasn't really an issue, and now I'm an MS1. Good luck!
