First Undergrad Semester (Spring 08) Music Appreciation: B+ Physical Geology: D Physical Geology Lab: F College Algebra: F Intro to World Politics: D I'm still amazed at how bad I did with such a lightweight courseload, but I feel I learned from the mistakes of that semester. I got straight A's this semester which included a retake of the physical geology class and lab. I'm going to start on the prereqs this semester (Bio I and Gen. Chem I + labs), and I'm confident that I'll continue getting straight A's, the only B's I can possibly forsee are maybe Calculus and possibly Physics. I'm planning to join some health and non-health related clubs this semester and do volunteering and shadowing during breaks and off weeks during the summer. Is there anything else I should plan on doing before I start applying (spring/summer 2011)? And will my first semester (planning to retake the D's aand F's) significantly hurt my chances in 2011?
