If I want to be premed, do I have to be really really good in my science courses?

I have struggled a little bit in high school in my science courses. Will this affect me?

Ransi’s Answer

Med schools won’t be looking at your high school grades. However, college gives you an opportunity to work hard and do well in your pre med classes. If you’re struggling in something, get help from your profs, tutors and other students. Med school is competitive so you’ll need to work hard. Even so don’t worry that you’re grades aren’t perfect. Med schools understand we are all human. They look at the whole package: grades, MCATs, essays, volunteer work, research and YOU.

Richard’s Answer

You will need to get good grades in college in order to apply for medical school. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.

Also your science knowledge has to be superior in order to score well on the MCAT
