does an A- in math affect a maybe pre-med?
i am in a dilemma. I love science, but I'm not great at math. Does this put me in a bad spot as a hopeful pre-med?

I had the opposite problem! I got a B in physics and Environmental Science, but have straight A's in math. In my experience, it is not a big deal as long as you aren't planning on an ivy league, and even if you are, still apply! A single A- is definitely not going to kill your entire admissions profile. Make sure to present yourself as a well rounded student and continue to study and try to bring that grade up.
You got this!
If it's just one A-, then it won't completely break your application, though it will be a small con. Hopefully your success in science and excellence in other areas will make up for it, but I would try my best to work on your math skills because you'll need to study at least some advanced math for pre-med and med school. Overall, not too bad a spot since one A- isn't a big deal, but still work on getting an upward trend and continuously working on your math skills.
Hope this helped!
