My wife took slimnastics. The exercising by power walking was on the honor system. The final was a timed power walk. It about destroyed everyone in the class.

I took bong hits my freshman year. It wasn’t a class but it was often during class. I learned a lot about economics, entrepreneurship, and getting laid

Just to calibrate a little, a 3.0 is going to be extremely marginal for pretty much any med school. He should really be shooting for As and A minuses in those courses. One nice thing is that you don't need calc for the mcat. Do need to have a handle on classical physics. Biology, obviously. And o-chem, I think.

It's not really marginal, it's basically an impossibility, unless you want to go to school in the Caribbean and deal with the aftermath of that, or you have an extremely compelling life story, football won't work for that.

I'm all for having bright, hardworking, broadly trained medical professionals, but let me reiterate, the MCAT is stupid. The course list our campus suggests these days is chemistry through biochem, biology (including cell, molecular genetics and an upper division physiology course), a year of physics, plus psychology (some suggest two semesters) and sociology. 

 

Encourage him not to get behind in the chemistry curriculum.
