High school is an important time to develop good study habits. This will help you get good grades in college. Med schools don't look at your high school transcript. But 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.

Hi Robert! Of course you can! High school sets you up for college but medical schools don't look at your high school records. They care about what you did in college, so definitely do keep your grades up. Make sure to maintain a 3.7+ GPA and high MCAT score, in addition keep visiting your premed adviser because they will help you in the path to medical school. You will do well!

Best of luck!

It's important to do well in your pre-med college classes. Consider college as a fresh start to provide you with focus on what you want to do going forward.

Hello Robert,
Medical school does not look at your high school grades. They will look at your college grades though, so you need to do extremely well in college. Right now, I would focus on getting into college and doing well in school then!
Good luck, all hope is not lost. :)
