I just took a recent exam and got a C+ on it. I talked to my professor and he told me in order to get an A in the course I needed to get an A on the last speech, which I'll be working hard to make that happen.

But all I want to know is if I do get a B, would it look bad. I know you can get B's and still get into medical school, even C's, I just want to know if it looks bad for this particular class.

Anyway thanks!

According to the MSAR, anything less than an A- in speech is pretty damning. The reason my dean gave is because they really are driving at training physicians capable of communicating very well with patients and colleagues.

They're giving you ****, bro. It's speech. Calm down. :-D If it were a therapeutic communication course, I could see that being a minor issue. Public speaking, though? Just shoot for that B and relax.
