Hello all, I'm at Brock University in their Neuroscience program. First year I did pretty poorly. I am not much of a party person but I did let procrastination get the better of me. This second year I did decent in first semester but not great and I can attribute my grades again to my bad habits. However, in second semester I was plagued with spontaneous pneumothoraces (lung collapses) and so I missed a week of classes to heal. A month later it happened again, and at finals it happened again!! I managed to do my finals with my collapsed lung LOL. In fact I am here writing this with a chest tube in me as I had surgery and might still need other procedures.. Needless to say, my grades are shot. My OMSAS GPA is a 2.0. So how do I go about rectifying my poor academic performance? I do learn the material I am taught but I also don't test well. I would love to know what I can do to still have a chance at getting in. Should I do a masters degree? Take less courses but do better in them with the greater allotment of time? Currently I am already a semester behind because I was going to take organic chem this spring session but I ended up being hospitalized so I cancelled it; however this means I cannot take some of my fall/winter courses since organic chem is a prereq. I would also appreciate any tips on how to stop procrastinating. I appreciate any help and thanks for reading this. I read some similar posts but I felt like my questions weren't really answered. If I am missing something, please let me know.
