Hi, I'm new to the forum and I have a few questions to ask. First a little bit of background. I graduated high school in '07 with a 3.7 GPA. I was the one touted as the most likely to flourish in college. Unfortunately, I have done anything but flourish. The first semester went well and I had a 3.0 GPA (lowest grade was a C), but it was second semester when things fell apart. Even thought I had an A in English Comp, I struggled in my other classes and ended up failing Chem I (the first time I ever failed a class). Now my GPA sits at 2.2. I know, not good. I'll admit that it was mostly just because of being lonely. I go to a big school out of state where I don't know anyone (still don't) so that kinda threw me off cause even though I'm naturally shy, I did well in high school because I was interacting with people on a regular basis. I don't know why there's a correlation there, but there is. Anyway, I initially thought it was all over at that point, but after talking with some people, I see that it's really just a minor bump in the road. It'll be an uphill climb, but I'm not completely out of the pre-med game. Which brings me to today. I've been putting a lot of thought into where I'm going to go from here. I realized that while I can handle the pre-req work for med school, I cannot major in a science and be flooded with the hard sciences all four years. Right now I'm focusing on meeting the university's core curriculum first so I have time to think about the major I choose. I've narrowed my choses to the following: -Exercise Science: I've had an interest in nutrition and exercise for a while, but from what I've heard, this major is more about learning to be a personal trainer. Just what I've heard. -Psychology: Another major I've been interested since high school. This was originally my first choice and I did well in the introductory course. -Radio/Television/Film: I have always had a huge love of films and wanted to learn about the process of making them. I tell most people that if I weren't going to med school, I'd like to make films. The only thing about this one I worry about is that it's so far away from the typical med school major that it may hurt my chances of getting in. -Biology: This is really just a last resort. So my questions are: 1. Are those majors viable and would any of them help or hurt my chances of acceptance? 2. Have any of you made the comeback from a failed course (specifically a science course) early on in college and make it to med school? 3. Did any of you major in a non-science major and get to med school? What was your experience like (did you enjoy it, was it difficult balancing the two, etc.)? And let me add that I'm not opposed to summer school. In fact, my mom has been almost pushing to take summer classes. Anyway, I know these are questions I should ask an academic advisor, but I wanted to get the opinions of those who are where I'm at right now or who've been there not too long ago. Thank you.
