Hello I am a 16 year old boy who wants to become a doctor (radiologist). Im still in high school but heres where I need your help . I did terrieble in freshmen and sophomore year of high school . I am entering a 11th grade .I am planning to turn around my education. I will be looking for a 3.5 plus gpa and getting a least three letters of recommdation . I know I will not be accepted into a 4 year school even if achieving these goals. I know med schools do not look at hs grades but colleges look at them .I will probably only get into a community college .I read and believe its not over for my dream to become a doctor but heres the questions . How long will I have to stay at a commutiy college for me to raise my gpa to get into a four year university ? Will my time there be accounted for lets say I do 1 year at a cc then transfer to a four year university .Will I only need to do 3 years at the four year university also I hear people on here talking about med schools looking down upon students who attend a cc .Also they say not to do prereqs there ????? Whats a prereq ???? is a certain class you have to take as a requirement for med school (I think that's what it is ).Is there anyway I can skip these prereqs at the cc at take them at a 4 year university to ensure my education is vaulbe to apply to my mcat ?? But how would I raise my gpa at the cc if im not taking these classes .I don't want to take them at a cc I want to take them at a 4 year university to ensure my medical school accpacance . Is there hope ??????????????????????? This kills me to know that I could had it easier if I just worked normal freahman and sophomore year of h.s.
