GPA for Med Schools

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon


I am a first year Pre Med student majoring in Biomedical Engineering... I wasn't quite pleased with my academic performance during freshman year.


This is my GPA as of now... am seriously considering retaking the mathematics courses, where I ended up with a B and a C+ in. Any Suggestions?


Looking into both American and Canadian Medical Schools

Tbh I think you did overall very well in your first year and I would be pretty content in your spot! Going into your next year, see what other strategies you can implement to improve from here! Don't forget GPA is only 1 piece of the puzzle and you may want to use your time to get involved in extracurriculars etc.

All the best! Cheers

Regardless of what your school does, med schools will take both grades and not replace the lower one.

Some schools (e.g., UofT) also do not allow you to re-take courses if you passed them, unless they was a certain grade requirement to qualify for entry or transfer into a particular major/minor that you did not meet.
