    hey folks,

    I just found out that I have gotten D+ for Biochem 2 and C for cell bio. and all A on other upper-division Bio courses, like the microbiology. For the past few years, I have gotten Cs in physics 2 and Orgo. Until now, I finally learned that I need to change my study habit and put extra effort into it. Furthermore, I am currently a Junior and will be enrolling as a senior in the fall semester majoring in biochemistry.

    For this summer, I am working about 20 hours a week and studying 7 hours for MCAT with two hours at the gym. Is 7 hours enough for the MCAT everyday? Since I know I won't be able to get into the med school next year, so I am taking the MCAT around end of the Aug. and start of Sept.

    In order to improve my science GPA, I have registered many upper division Bio courses such as the neurobio, cancer bio, cell signaling and so on in addition to the statistics ( it will be counted to science GPA, right?). I am confident that I will do well in those courses, since I have tried my new study habit last few weeks to be able to ace the microbiology final and Human evolution final. ( How I wish to use it at the beginning of the freshman year, and it took almost 3 years to change about it... sigh..:()

    and I am planning to stay one more year to retake those courses and I have gotten Cs and D.

    What do you make of it? is it a good plan to prove myself? please give your opinions, suggestions and advices. I would be very much grateful.

    Thank you in advance
