Hi Vanisha I agree with the previous answer; your college credentials matter such as GPA, MCAT and extracurriculars. Keep working hard and doing well and take it a step at a time. Also when you get to college there are premed advisers that will help you narrow down what matters for medical school!

Best of luck!

Hi Vanisha. I have doctors in my family and they have stated that the medical school admissions process is not interested in high school grades. An applicant's overall GPA is considered, along with the GPA in the major, and the MCAT scores, among other things. Do not worry about med school just yet. Focus on graduating high school and doing well in college.

Good luck!
