I had a really bad semester. My mom had a worsening health condition, my sister was put in to a psychiatric ward after attempting to commit suicide twice, and my father is going to change jobs. I've been trying to help them out at home throughout this semester. I've been feeling depressed and suicidal throughout this semester and end of last. I lost my motivation to do anything and I was also sick at least for an entire week throughout the semester.
I screwed up horribly in Orgo. I just got a C in the lecture and a B- in the lab.
I'll have a 3.65 GPA overall from this and last semester.
Should I retake in the summer? I was planning on staying at my college to take a different class, but I can switch Orgo in to retake instead.
Problem is that at my college, if I received a C- or lower in a class and retook it, then the new grade would count towards the GPA. Since I received a C, my transcript would show the other grade, but it wouldn't calculate it in to my GPA. Would med schools calculate it in? Will they understand my situation this semester? Which medical schools require Bs or higher in prereqs?
