    What is the lowest grade in O.Chem that people can get while still remain competitive being that they have A's in General Chem and Biology and B's in Physics?

    C-. People get in with Cs in the prereqs all the time, including ochem. If there are As in gen chem, Bs in physics and a good overall science GPA it isn't going to be that big of a deal. Things like a solid upward trend and As in upper division classes will help sweeten the deal. Everyone knows ochem is difficult. Half the doctors I talk to when it comes up that I'm finishing up the organic series will say, "Yup...ochem...my only Cs in college."

    Looks like vugu just bombed an ochem midterm. Don't worry about it, look at the long run.

    Seriously. It isn't the end of the world; hell I got a 37% on my last ochem midterm...A 37%! One test doesn't matter, one class doesn't. You're fine. :)
