Premed & Math Major at NYU
I am a third year undergrad student pursuing a degree in math and am also on the prehealth track. This last semester was really rough for me and dropped my gpa from a 3.6 to 3.4. I took Organic Chemistry 2, Linear Algebra, and Calculus 3. I got a C in Orgo 2, B in Calc 3, and am expecting to receive a B or B- in Linear Algebra. I feel pretty stressed at the moment that my gpa is really low and am worried about if I even have a chance at medical school anymore. I also know that the math classes are only going to get harder and I'm taking Analysis next semester, so I'm worried my gpa will drop even more. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I only have Biochem and Physics to complete the prehealth curriculum. Should I continue with premed and the Math major or should I shift my focus somewhere else?12 replies
