If I have a 3.4 gpa in high school would I survive the pathway of becoming a medical school student?

I've always wanted to goto medical school. #hospital-and-health-care #medicine #college

Thank you comment icon The answer is YES. lot's of people do badly in highschool but succeed in college as a valedictorian so anything is possible. However, college is intense, especially as a science major because u have to take lab which other major may not have to. It's all about time management, work super hard and smart :) Vy

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.

Getting good grades takes work. Go to class. Plan to spend 2-3 hours studying for every hour of lecture. Attend your professor's office hours and any TA review sessions. If there is a test bank, use that as a study tool to understand what your professor wants you to focus on for the test.

Absolutely, high school gpa has little correlation to a college gpa other than an example of your work ethic. A 3.4 gpa shows you care about your grades and that you're willing to put in the work. Keep that same mentality in college and you'll do great.
