Good day, I'd really appreciate it if someone gave me the honest truth. I screwed up during my first semester of my bachelor of science degree (in genetics and biochemistry) and I only scored a 62% which is like 0.-something GPA, I had some issues and I know I can do much better. If I get GPAs around 3.4+ for my remaining 2 years so that my total would be about 2.7, which is best I can do. Will this increase trend give me an advantage? Also I do charity every year for 3 months for about 6 hours everyday but I only started this year. I'm from South Africa so I don't write MCAT, will I be able to get into SGU? I also wouldn't be needing loans or financial aid, I'm able to pay the fees straight up, does this help me at all?
