Med School application question

  1. Nov 2, 2005 #1
    I'm a first year university student interested in medicine as a career. My marks are relatively good (it's early, but GPA~3.9), but my weak subject happens to be physics and I am considering dropping it to retake it either over the summer or next term. It will be without penalty on the transcript, but it will show up as a cancel. I was wondering if this will adversly influence a future application at all?

    Short answer is no, but when the interview comes up, you might be asked about it, but if you continue on a good course there is practically no way this will affect you whatsoever. Id also recomment you take statistics and an ethics/philosophy class, as those two would also be useful for you in med school.
