Messed up last minuteChances pre-req
Posted 19 May 2017 - 11:17 PM
I just finished my semester and unfortunately I got a c in anatomy 2.
Just a little background. I have about 4,600 HCE as an MA and as a clinical research assistant (both jobs at the same time). I work over 60hrs per week and didn't have the time I needed for this class. However I did also get a B in orgo, an A in genetics and an A in psychology 2 this semester.
The rest of my grades for all prereqs are As (micro, psych 1, stats, med term, chem, bio) minus one B in anatomy 1.
My GRE score is 310-315. And I also have volunteering hours as a case manager and disaster responder totalling 150 hrs to date.
I'm wondering if I should bother applying or retake anatomy to try and get a better grade. The summer class will end early July, but would that be too late to apply?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I'm feeling a bit down because I really did not want a C in my transcript and was hoping to apply by now.

Go ahead and apply and I'd recommend retaking anatomy because that's one of the most important pre-reqs and you really want to prove you'll do well in it. C's aren't a dealbreaker in general though, I was accepted with 2 Cs (chemistrys) and a D in genetics on my transcripts and only re-took genetics (got an A) but I would have definitely retaken anatomy if one of those Cs was in that course. Just mark it as planned or in-progress on your application but otherwise you should be fine!
