Unable to take a full course load this year - can I still apply to med?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I recently completed my second year of university but it didn't exactly go as planned. In first semester I was going through some pretty heavy mental health stuff (suicidal ideations and hallucinations) and ended up only being able to finish two of five courses. In second semester I was just starting to pull my sh*t together when I suffered a severe concussion and once again was only able to finish two of five courses. Even though I still managed to keep my GPA up, this year has been really rough, and I was starting to come to terms with having to re-do most of my second year and being behind all my friends when I was told by someone that I am no longer eligible to apply to medical school as I am not taking a full course load. I was planning to do two more years of full-time study and one final year with my honors and reduced course load but now I am panicking because I may have screwed up my entire future. I looked over the requirements for every school and only saw that 3 full-time years are required for some, but I'm not sure if I am missing anything.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time.
