Depends on your numbers. 5 years ago, i got accepted to UCLA, UCSD, UCD,Boston University with 3.3-3.4 weighted GPA and 2000 on SAT's.


just curious, what made you apply to Boston University all the way from L.A.?

BAD but if you can pull off all A's from here on out, you can still maintain a 3.5
if you can, retake those course


Damn, I completely overlooked where he said he acquired two F's in COLLEGE suprised

I thought I was bad off with my 2 C's. Anyway, this is much worse to be blunt. You can retake those courses and they will take out your F's and factor the newer grade into your GPA, but those F's will still show up on your transcript.

you can still get into grad school or possibly medical school if you decide to head towards that path.

You've heard of someone getting into Med with two F's? I hear to beware of anything lower than a B because that's when you start loosing competitiveness. But I guess it really does depend on the school. Just make sure you have really good grades in your science & math classes because Med school considers these two subjects in their own category called Science GPA (they also consider your overall cGpa, but science GPA is more important usually). High MCATs of course, and shadow doctors, and volunteer in hospitals. Get some good leadership spots in school too.

This is all assuming you're applying to Med.

really depends on your college tho. Two F's shows that you're (not targeting YOU) either lazy or didn't care. Most colleges will let you retake a course if it is below a C grade. Just because you retake a course doesnt mean the F gets erase, it will still appear on your transcript but the newer grade will be factor in to the total, and college may overlook your F's.

Just take your F's like a grain of salt and move on. Don't look at your past, just focuses on the future. Colleges like trend, if you can show it by pulling great grades, you can still get into grad school or possibly medical school if you decide to head towards that path.

take it from me, this semester i manage to only achieve a 2.85 GPA. i realize my mistake and am determine to aim high in my last 3 years.

Note- Grades aren't everything, make sure to be active in school's activities, internships..

GL


yeah man, i just really bit off way more that i could chew this semester & messed up with math last semester smh. I plan on aiming high starting with these summer courses i'll be taking.
And no way would I be applying for med school lol

Best of luck with that. The last credit I'd ever want to lose is an AP Bio credit. You should be alright if what you're saying is the truth though; they're supposed to send you two notices, and you only received one - their fault. I'm assuming all these absences were in one quarter/semester...? How do you even manage to rack up that many?

In the end it doesn't matter if you failed two classes, get a B or whatever. What matters is your MCAT scores, which are indicative of how well you will do on your PASS 1, PASS 2 exams in medical school. As far as extracurricular activities go, just do what makes you happy, but make sure that you gain something out of it. You can volunteer in an organization for 3 years and if you have nothing to talk about, i.e. what you learned from it, then its useless.

80 percent of selection to medical school is MCAT and GPA. 20 percent is extracurricular activities.

If anyone needs medical school advising hit me up with a PM. I use to be a premed peer advisor for UCD

lol thats not true at all. medical school is EXTREMELY selective and if you think getting 2 C's doesn't hurt your chances, you are mistaken.

Was deciding on transferring from sfsu to cal poly slo
for Architecture, but there seem to be a lot of requirement and
might even take a longer process to transfer.

social life/party life is pretty swag. tailgating, frat parties are always fun.
dorm life all depends on who your living with and where your friends are but my floor was aiite only because i had a decent number of fobs on my floor who had some hygiene problems.
Commons food is good and you have options and theres alot of good restaurants downtown. and theres always options for late night food
class difficulty all depends on your major and how your classes were in highschool but i found it all to be managable.
the only bad things i would say about it is that its kind of in the middle of nowhere and there isnt much to do downtown other than eat or catch a movie.
like any other school its all what you make of it
