Hey!! Didn't post for a very long time. I just realized that I had less than 50 credits away from getting my BS Degree and now I am scared because of my grades and such. I keep on looking at my transcripts and I am disappointed. General Chemistry I-C, General Chem II-D Retake-B, Trig D Retake-A, Orgo I&II-C Calculus I-C and Calculus II-withdrew, but I am going to retake this fall. When I transferred to the university, I began to see an upward trend in my classes A's and B's and this coming fall, I hope that trend stays.I also began clincal experience and did research this summer. But given what I have so far, do you think I should give up hope? Please respond

If you really want it, don't give up hope. Take a realistic assesment. Have you taken the MCAT? If so, how's the score? How's your overall GPA and your science GPA with all the grades figured in? Are you taking some upper level science courses to show that you can hack it?

No one grade is going to shut you out or get you in. It's the whole package that counts.
