I know this topic has been discussed extensively in regards to MD/DO schools but I have the option to take Biochemistry as a Pass/Fail this next semester. I will be taking: Genetics Microbial Ecology Physics II (w/Lab) Biochemistry Independent Research (Planning Stage) _____ This is an issue for me mainly because this will be my last semester that will appear on my transcript before applying. Will medical schools look down upon me doing Pass/Fail? The only reason I would do this is because I have been on a constant upward trend since first semester freshman year (3.5..3.6..3.7..3.8..3.9) and there is no way I will realistically get a 4.0 with this schedule. I am a bit confused on this as a whole... how would a Pass/Fail factor into my GPA? I will probably just take it the normal grading system, I am just nervous I will shoot myself in the foot if something goes wrong as everyone always tells me "Biochem is the hardest UG class ever!" Not very comforting.
