Ok so I just finished my first semester Sophomore year and I messed up on my finals causing my As to drop to Bs in Genetics and Gen Chem 2. :( Last semester I had a 3.72 GPA and this semester a 3.56 GPA. I know I can get As in these science courses I just had three finals on one day and I guess it was hard to fit it all in because I had As going into the finals. I have wanted to be a doctor for my whole life and anyone who knows me knows how bad I want to become a doctor. I have been working so hard but I just cried my eyes out for 2 days after finding out about these two Bs in science courses because I thought my whole med school plan was ruined. I am in a sorority, pre med club, volunteer at Children's hospital at my Univeristy, and am planning on either doing a research program or working at a hospital this summer. I am also shadowing a pediatrician. Is there still hope for me and should I continue on the pre-med track?? Thank you for your advice!

Here's a chill pill. Take it.

You will be fine, just keep working hard and take it in stride.

Cheer up, you'll be fine. Your GPA seems to be around average and you still have 3 more semesters to raise it. If being a doctor is what you want to do, just keep working hard towards it.

Don't get so distracted by your extracurricular activities that you get side-tracked from your most important priority: a high GPA. You'll be fine if you get back on track and do better next time. You have plenty of time to get better grades. There is indeed hope for you.
