Yes, you can still get into medical school. Most medical school admission committees understand that there is a transition period from studying for high school classes to college classes. College students can spend 1–2 years trying to figure out their optimal study habits and schedule. You need to take an honest look in the mirror and identify what your weaknesses are. Are you distracting yourself too often with Facebook or your phone? Are you taking advantage of the TAs in their office hours every available moment? Are you doing enough practice problems? Do you need to study in groups or alone? What’s your learning style?
If you fail 1–2 tests and still pull a B/B- in the class or even a C during the first year, you’re still OK. You can demonstrate to the admissions committee that you are adjusting your study schedule and learning from your mistakes by doing better in your classes. The key is upward trend in your grades as you progress through college. If you start off with a GPA in the low 3s and finish your senior year in the 3.8/3.9s (with an average GPA in the 3.5–3.6 range), most admissions committee will understand. You still need to rock your science/math grades in the later stages of your college career, but not everything hinges on your first year.
The bottom line is that you still have a lot of time to fix your study habits.
