    In desperate need of advice

    Thank you both so much. Smiled while reading those. Thanks so much.
  2. Hello all! Unfortunately, my situation is pretty complicated but I'll try to keep it concise. I am 21 years old, 22 in February. I have spent the past 4 years essentially taking university courses and either receiving poor grades (4 bad grades) or dropping courses. Growing up I was a high-level hockey player, and I had to stop playing due to a heart condition. I stopped playing officially when I was 19 and I have spent the past three years very lost and not sure what to do. I have wasted years of university, dropping and giving a poor effort to my courses. Though, through this whole painful process, I have realized I want to pursue medicine; more specifically cardiology. I have dropped my courses for the rest of the year and have gained acceptance to a health science program at Ottawa U to begin this coming September. I know I am academically capable of succeeding as I was a 94+ student in high school. With all of this, I am wondering whether my messy transcript and 4 poor grades have completely ruined my chances for medical school at Ottawa U? My plan is to begin my UG in Sept and do well for the next 2-3 years and apply. I have also begun volunteering and doing research whatever. Even if I do manage 2/3 full time UG years at 3.9+, have I lost my shot? Any insight into my situation would be fantastic. Thanks so much.
