Im just concerned about losing the whole upward trend thing by getting lower grades a semester before I apply.
Im at a low A in Calculus right now, and I think I can pull an A in quantitative chemical analysis, But that last one depends on how the ACS final is -_-. I have a really high A in Biochem 1 right now so Im not worried about that one, just the other two.I mean, what classes are you getting B/B’s in? If it’s not science/prereq I wouldn’t stress too much. You have a great DAT and solid GPA and you still have time to pull an A if you make 99999 on the final exam (jk, but don’t give up on whatever grade you’re aiming for).

I am currently a junior getting ready to apply after next semester. My current GPA is a 3.63 and my science GPA is a 3.7. I just took the DAT this past summer and scored a 23. I am worried about this semester as I think I might get a B in one or two of my classes and I am concerned that will look really bad to have my GPA drop at all, right before I apply to D school. What do you guys think, is it something I should be overly concerned with?
Bless. I needed to hear that lol. When it’s getting down close to application time all the little finite things start to eat away at you.You’re being overly neurotic. Unless you’re dead set on Harvard you can relax. A 23 DAT makes up for a low GPA but yours is good.
I appreciate it bud. Yeah you hit the nail on the head. The main point of my question wasn’t exactly about how my stats will look in general, but the effect of some possible fluctuation in the upwards GPA trend right before I apply. Thanks for the advice!I think everyone is overlooking what your question actually is about. Upward trend is important and so is doing well in your math and science courses closer to when you apply.
What you need to do is buckle down and finish strong. If you do still end up with a B or 2, don’t sweat it, you have next semester to make up for it. I applied with a lot lower GPA than you and have had multiple interviews, so don’t get caught up in the numbers, make sure the rest of your application is strong as well.
