Sonny-From your post history, it seems you're a high school senior. You've been consistently giving advice to people on this board which to me seems like the blind leading the blind. I think you should "Get the F*&% outta here" as you have no experience upon which to justify your advice. I'm looking for input for students who have gone through the application process, not a boy who hasn't attended a single college lecture. That said, welcome to my ignore list.
A statement for everyone else: I'M NOT TROLLING! Check my post history. I've been active for years with the same profile, same strengths, and the same worries. My college's prehealth adviser focuses primarily on premeds so as a predent, I'm dependent on SDN for information.
I appreciate any input on my current chances and on how I can make myself a better applicant and/or prepare myself to be a better practicing dentist. Please be critical and suggest activities if you can. I'm aiming for research-oriented schools.
