I think you are on the right track. Take a year or so to retake all the courses you did poorly in and have at least a year of amazing grades to show you have changed and can handle the courses.Hi All.
So I decided that I want to go to med schools months after finishing my undergrad degree in neuroscience. I got a 3.2 as my cumulative and a 3.0 in science. I got a C- in both orgs, C+ in both chems and a C in Physics 1 and I never took Biochem.. I am being told to either do a formal post bacc (Chem, Orgo, Physics, and Biochem) of my under grad classes or a SMP (which I feel like I would be rejected from considering some of my low science grades. And I also feel like I have to remediate those grades for myself so I can do well on the MCAT. I have been told if I get a 3.7 and above when I retake all these classes again, I should be fine. I will be applying to DO schools when I do apply.
Bio 1/2: B+/B+
Chem 1/2: C+/C+
Physics 1: C
Anatomy 1/2: B-
You also are going to need the knowledge from these courses for the MCAT which you also need to do well on.
Take this process seriously as a few low grades and/or a low MCAT could be the end of your chances. Good luck!
