This is my first post on this site and I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post this in so bear with me.

I am going into my sophomore year at UChicago this fall (URM). I'm worried that after my first year, my gpa will be too low for MD schools. If I got a 4.0 for the next three years I would be able to get a 3.7 gpa but I highly doubt that will happen.

My first year overall gpa was a 3.1 and my science gpa is a dismal 2.8.

Should i give up now and just go for a post-bacc or choose a different career?

Please help.

Go to your academic success center.
You need to start getting A's. If that means another major or a different approach, get it figured out.

Get your sGPA up past a 3.0 and apply DO. MD is not the end-all-be-all of medicine.

Never give up if you're a URM.
