Hey everyone, I'm going to be a second semester junior this fall and I was just wondering about how chemistry classes are viewed in considering your GPA. With medical schools, physics, bio, chem, ochem grades are pretty much weighed equally from what it seems like, however, I don't know too much about pharmacy, since I've just returned my attention to the field recently. My dilemma is that I don't have a fantastic GPA (3.35 overall), and as a biology major, I didn't really do well in chemistry classes (that's been a trend since high school), but I did enjoy gen. chem and I loved organic chemistry (especially the second semester with macromolecules). My chemistry grades are: Gen Chem: B, B+ (freshman) Organic Chem: C+, B (sophomore) Now as an excuse, the validity of which I'm not too sure, that C+ in orgo came during a really stressed out semester where I was doing a work-study job, taking Molecular Biology as well as preparing for a religious pilgrimage outside of the country. I took the final exam after I got back into the country (while I was there, it was all prayers and all, so I couldn't really study) so once I got back, I crammed for two weeks and got that result. I'm considering taking it over again (at a city university or community college, because my college is just too expensive) during the summer before senior year. I know this raises a lot of issues (work, science courses, religion, outside courses, etc.), so with the necessary bits in mind, my questions are: 1. How much more weight do chemistry courses receive over other science courses (namely biology, since I'll have more courses in that), if at all 2. Do most pharmacy schools (namely around NYC) consider courses taken outside your university of attendance when they're retakes? And is it a bad thing? (NYUs classes cost me about $4,000 during the summer) 3. My biology courses have been Principles 1 (A-) & 2 (A), Molecular Bio B+, Cell Bio(B-), Genetics (A-). Upcoming: Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Independent Study (my current research lab)...Will these other courses be able to overshadow the chemistry grades if they're better than B+ grades, by sheer numbers alone? Thanks in advance.
