Currently in my sophomore year of university and trying to pickup the pieces. My freshman year I had some personal issues that have since been resolved however my grades still reflect them. My gpa as of right now is a 1.966, I know...terrible. Since I began classes in the fall I've maintained straight A's with the addition of a winter session course. Spring session begins today but I can't help but feel discouraged with the cloud that lies above me. From the time I've spent on forums and calculating my senior year gpa (3.1 given I maintain A's) I'd be lucky to go DO. I understand MD is competitive however can two grades really be this detrimental to my future. I intend on keeping a strong upward trend, maintaining at least a 3.8 gpa for the rest of my college career. I guess my question is, am I out of the running for MD schools because of two bad grades or do I have options I'm just not aware of? Is salvaging a 1.966 gpa feasible?
