    "Completion of the prerequisite coursework
    Grades of C or better (grades of C- are not acceptable)
    To receive a supplemental application, students must have minimum cumulative and BCP science GPAs of 2.75 on a 4.00 scale, as calculated by AADSAS"

    "No grade lower than a C will be accepted for any prerequisite courses (i.e. a grade C– will not be acceptable)."

    It says I need a C or better in the prerequisite, so does that mean a D is ok on the other classes?! I'll definitely still have a GPA in the 3.4ish range, but I'm dangerously close to a D in advanced biochem. T_T"

    Talk to the school!! You don't want to run the risk of having an acceptance rescinded! Rest assured, it happens more often that you'd think. Good luck.

    One of my friends got a C+ in phyiso his last semester and the dent school that accepted him told him he had to take an extra semester of classes with nothing less than a B, then resubmit his grades to them and they would grant him a second interview.

    He did it, they re-interviewed him and he'll be starting dent school soon.

    D=Say goodbye to your acceptance. Schools want C's or better no matter the Pre-req or not after acceptance.

    Talk to your professor. Explain your situation and ask for any bonus/extra assignment to help your grade. Ask him whether he will curve your class average.

    Your professor will know whether you have tried in his class or not. If he knows you as a student who tries hard, then he will try his best to help you out. However, if you are a slacker and he doesn't want to help you, then you don't deserve to be a dental school student.

    Good luck!

    based on what you posted it should be ok

    some schools attach conditions on their offers, some don't

    contact the school to be sure

    if you did breach something they'll find out when they do your academic audit

    Was this for the same application year or for two different cycles?

    The C+ was his last semester, he was accepted on Dec1st earlier in the cycle. After graduating he took a semester of classes and was then readmitted the following cycle.
