SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) so guys i m graduating with my bsc next spring finally. i applied last cycle to lots of schools but got rejections. i know it sucks . my gpa is 2.8---very bad 1 F, and 2D's . re-writing DAT next month (got 18's and 19's last time and determined to get above 20's). have tons of volunteer experience in dental as well as in community work. i thought to give it a shot one more time. i know my GPA sucks. But I want to be a dentist no matter what. I know there is chance i might not get in D school next year. So here come my plan B i am thinking to apply for D-gygiene 2 year diploma as well. I really don't want to do post bacc or masters and i don't want to take a year off because it will just stress me out. I want to stay within dental field. and to bump my GPA i will take some undergrad courses on the side. What do you guys think of my BSC cell bio-->dental hygine->DENTIST career path. At the end i know i want to be a dentist. any suggestions? will it hurt my chance of getting into D school?
