I am a freshman (cumulative GPA 3.47) First Semester- I got As in Bio, GenChem1, and the labs but I got a C in precalc. I came out with a 3.44 Second Semester-I got As in Bio and the GenChem2 lecture but an F inthe lab and a C in some crappy freshman orientation class. I came out with a 3.5. The F this semester is due to my having had insomnia this whole semester. I got an official excuse addressed to all my professors from the school and I think I will include that with my med school app when the time comes. Good or bad idea? So since I did really good in Chem 1st semester and really good in the lecture class 2nd semester, do you think adcoms will care? And after all it is ONLY freshman yr.... Do you guys think I'm off to a bad start?
