Hi! Happy New Year everyone! I am applying this year too, but I am concerned about my prereq GPA, as it's only 2.7 But my cumulative GPA on the last two years is a 3.8. I unfortunately passed most of my prereq courses with low marks in first year when it would have been smarter to just drop... little did I know at the time. I'm also in the last year of my program, so I can't upgrade anymore than I already have. I also received a D in organic chemistry 261 when I was in my first year, so that is affecting the prereq GPA as well. But I took chem 263 this past fall term and got an A-. Do any of you know if they put a lot of weight on the prerequisite GPA even if there is a significant improvement in grades for higher level courses?
It's just frustrating that my mistakes in first year are still coming back to get me even though I'm a totally different student since I started university!
