    Confused and Worried

    Advertisements



    Hey,
    I am actually using my friends account for posting a question. My question is, I am in my 3 rd year of med school (Caribbean) and in my classes, I mostly got B's and a couple of C's in med school. I also took Organic Chem I, the first semester along with a couple of med school courses, because the med school wanted me to repeat the course. USMlE I score was a 84%. My question is, will the grades in med school haunt me when I apply to residency and will they look down upon me taking Organic in 1st semester in med school. I just want to get into a decent/average Internal Medicine program in the Chicago/Detroit Area. After Im program, maybe a sub-speciality. Thanks

    You should request a transcript from your school to take a look at how those courses will be presented. I actually am in the same situation as you are I was worried as well, but AUA has separate transcripts for Medical Courses and Pre-medical Courses (despite the fact that I took those courses during my first semester), so my Organic II and Physics II don't show up on the transcript that residency directors will see. And, I don't think I'm obligated to present a separate transcript of Pre-medical courses while applying for residency.

    Besides, you have a great USMLE score - and everything else, including your pre-med situation will take a backseat to that.
