What Colleges Accept Low GPA Students?

Say I didn't get a very high GPA in highschool, If I bring it up to atleast a 3.5 in college for 4 years, then can I get into a medical school?

Re: What Colleges Accept Low GPA Students?

Packers800,

I can't say anything about what medical schools are looking for, but I do know that you can go to a junior (2-year) college and work hard on getting your GPA up, and then transfer to a 4-year college or university. This is sort of like getting a second chance to show that you're serious about attending to your studies.

Good luck!

No medical school in the world will look at your high school GPA.

I second what Rheanna said about community college. Apply to your state university, if you don't get in, a good record in a 2-year school should change their minds. You might even be able to transfer after just one year. And most community colleges accept anyone with a high school diploma.

Also, make sure that you address whatever caused you to have a low high school GPA. And start looking at the admissions requirements for medical school right away, so you know what classes to take when you start college.

Take a math course your first semester. Do not put it off because you hate math, it'll only get harder.
