    Possible to bring up 2.1 GPA to 3.5?

    Got a pathetic GPA during freshman year. 1st semester of Sophomore year ended up with a 3.3, so no it's now a cumulative GPA of 2.1. Plan to get a 3.8 this semester. Can I bring it up to a 3.5 by the end of senior year? Or do I need like an extra year? Going to apply to med school majoring as a biochemistry major.

    yeah possible, depending on your credit hours.

    the lower the number of credit hours, the greater the chance.

    and you have to basically get straight a's for the rest of your college career

    well lets see, u didnt provide me with ur first 2 semesster gpas but i just multiplied ur cumulative gpa after 3 semester by 3 so 6.3. then u got 3.3 first sophmore semester so ur gpa average after freshman year was 1.5. if u get a 4.0 for the next 5 semesters ur total gpa will be 26.3. divide that by 8 and the highest possible gpa u can have is 3.2875

    this doesnt take into account credit hours but its not that innaccurate, 3.5 pretty much will be not possible

    if your school has freshman forgiveness then just retake the classes you fuked up in and have your new grades replace the old ones.

    Don't be an hero too early, brah. Even if you don't get it up to a 3.5, grad schools look for trends as well as overall gpa.

    So just bust ass and get the best grades you can. Also, do some research or TAing or other **** to beef up dat dere academic resume.

    This is very important. A lot of grad schools look only at your last 45-60 credits. So if you can get a 4.0 in those then you got a good shot.

    Impossible.

    3 semester average = 2.1, 3 times 2.1 = 6.3
    5 semesters left, 5 semesters of 4.0 = 20 total gpa

    (6.3+20)/8= 3.2875

    that's your highest possible gpa

    Dean's list for getting a 3.33 GPA taking 12 credit hours? lolol

    But ya, a 3.5 accum. GPA is pretty much impossible in four years.
    Aim for a 3.2-3.3, and if you get anywhere close, schools will look favorably on the improvement. Also, help yourself by getting involved in clubs/activities. They'll help you out as well when it comes to applying to grad/med school if that's your goal.

    Oh. Well retaking classes = more time and money. So I guess it's possible but retaking a bunch of classes would suck.

    Not sure if my school lets you retake unless you fail, no idea really.

    I lol'd at that as well. What school do you go to?

    You need to work harder brah, plain and simple. 12 credits and a 3.3 is weak unless you are working 40+ hours a week and an engineering major.

    I concur, 3.5 is likely out of the question unless you pad it with unnecessary credits

    Lets be honest, you don't have a hope of getting into med school. A 3.5 is not a competitive GPA to get into med school. Have you looked at the entrance statistics?

    Some places do let you drop your lowest year of your degree. Look for those schools. Do your research and you might still have a shot. But if you could only pull a 1.5 in your first year, I'm being honest with you in saying you aren't smart enough. People who can do med school can do what you did in freshman year and still pull a 3.0+.

    Does Med School look at your final 60 hours when calculating GPA?

    If not, you can retake the classes for an A that will give you a mega boost on your GPA. Anything is possible man.

    Sorry, but you can't retake classes. AMCAS requires that you send in the grades for all classes you took, including the first of two repeated courses AMCAS does not use your college's GPA - it calculates your GPA based on its own methods.

    This + academic probation.... no chance of med school.

    Sorry.
