No one would care. But this would also be an incredibly silly course of action.Hi everyone,
So I am in a bit of a pickle (and I know people will probably get upset at this question), but hear me out.
Background: I am finishing my last semester of school, and I currently retain a 4.0. I worked so hard for this damn GPA and it is truly my pride and joy. I have already applied to MD school, but I don't have any II yet... Realizing that it is very likely I will have to reapply, I find myself in a predicament.
I am in a class with probably the worst and most unpredictable professor at my institution. I have done well on his exams (with the curve), but the last exam is worth 40% of my grade, and according to his syllabus I would need to get an 90% on his final exam (with the curve). You see, I don't how much he'll curve as it depends on the class, so I am wondering if it would be all right to just P/F this class and take the P. It is truly the only class (besides my honors seminars which are mandatory P/F) that I would have P/F'ed. I have no A-'s and for my pride I really don't want to gamble and maybe get an A-/B+. I know I sound like a piece of crap, but what would y'all do? Would medical schools really care about a singular P/F in my last semester of college to preserve my pristine pre-med 4.0?
Also, I know this isn't a good excuse, but I'm just so burnt and really don't want to have to study super hard for this relatively intense final these next few weeks. Anyway, I apologize if I just pissed off basically everyone, but SDN has been mega helpful thus far and I appreciate everyone on this thread. Thanks y'all!
Your pride will suffer several wounds over the course of your medical training, so you might as well get over it now.
