Get in if you can with the stemp group, and the folks who do youth slam.

I will finish with a bachelor in biology with a minor in chemistry before I go to pharmacy school. I have had two semesters of organic chemistry, one semester of in organic, and a semester of medicinal chemistry. Of course, this is on top of the two semesters of general chemistry that everyone needs to have. I have had two semesters of biology, and I’m getting ready to complete at least three more. I was a heavy user of tactile drawings for my organic chemistry classes, there is no substitute. It is structure based, and if you do not have structures, you cannot learn. Where are you planning to go to school? I will help you in anyway that I can. In my biology classes, I have had tactile drawings as well as different types of models of different organisms and body systems. I also was participant in the labs, and did all of the hands-on things that everyone else did. Keep your expectations high! They are going to be people who want to give you a pass on things that they perceive as visual, but this is not acceptable.
Good luck!
Emily
