1) Go to you school's learning or education center to get help with study skills, time mgt, test taking strategies, ect.I’m in my junior year of my sociology degree with a 3.0 gpa, but the reason I have it is because of my writing courses, I’ve taken the premed courses since my freshmen year and I’m barely touching up on my first calculus course. This summer I took General chem 1 and failed it so I still have the option to retake it but this would mean staying an extra semester to fill in for biochem and even then I don’t have a guarantee I’ll even pass considering how this summer course went. I’m just sad to see how I really couldn’t go through with the stem courses and won’t be able to actually pursue my career as an MD, would it be smart of me to stop taking these stem courses and just focus on my degree and increasing my gpa?
2) The focus on learning how to learn and deal with coursework. More rigorous coursework can come later
3) Rising GPA trends are always good.
4) You may eventually need to do a DIY post-bac or SMP for reinvention.
5) It's no sin to bail now and do something else.
