DENTAL SCHOOL ADMISSION

Asked 8 months ago by Guest (120 points)

Hi ,

So I did kinda bad in my first and second year ( mostly B's and C+'s with one D and one A) but perfect in my 3rd and fourth year ( all A's and A+'s) I haven't done my DAT yet but I'll try my best to get 22+ (scheduled for this Feb) and I have done dentistry volunteering as well. So would preforming poorly in my 1st and 2nd year lower my chances of getting into dental school or not really. I'm really worried and afraid that I don't get accepted into any dental school :/ I was thinking to stay extra year in my program and repeat all the courses with C+ in my first and second year and the one with D, am really confused and don't know what to do ANY HELP/ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED :)

P.s: Please comment down the universities that you suggest me to apply for....

First, without a doubt, repeat the relevant courses where you got a D.  You probably should repeat those courses where you got a C-plus, but getting an A should be the goal.  Seek your predental advisors  on your campus and get support from professors who have a better understanding of your challenging situation and write you supportive letters when it comes time to apply.  Network with some schools where you think you have a great interest in and a strong chance to be considered.  There are no guarantees in the admissions process, so get networking.
