Thanks to all for the advice. To those who asked why I'm dead set on surgeon, I'm not dead set, but I want to look into surgery. I really need clinical experience to make a logical decision. Also, I've been shooting for chiropractic for a while now, and they require only a "C" in all classes. So, that's where my GPA fell. Now that I know medicine is for me, I will shoot for an "A". Yes, I will get a 3.5 or higher on the rest of my courses, which will put me at about 3.1 or 3.2. Yes, I will get a 30 or higher on my MCAT, and I will apply with 1 year of volunteer research as well as clinical observation on the job. Along with a kick ass letter of recommendation from a close friend that is a D.O., and a strong interview, don't count me out yet.
