SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So, this may sound like a stupidily phrased question I suppose, but do applicants with "average" GPA's get into dental school? By "average" i mean someone whose GPA is neither amazing, nor horrible, somewhere in the 3.35-3.40 range (that's me!) I haven't taken the DAT yet but my science GPA looks to be ending up around the 3.35-3.40ish range, although I still have approximately 20 units to take, so my numbers can go up. Apart from this, there's nothing remarkable about me as an applicant. Yes, I've shadowed some (only 35 hours so far). yes, I've volunteered, Yes, I have a lot of work experience as a non-trad applicant. I just don't know if I look good as an applicant...I'm just having so many doubts :/ I don't plan to apply until June of next year, fyi.
