SO I have been accpeted to dental school and recieved my officaial package. It says to not let my final GPA drop substatnially and unfortunatly Iam not sure on exactly what that is.

i have a 3.6 now and i think i will fail my immunology class (i missed so much classs due to going to interviews, six in all, and it was very difficult to keep up) I also will be getting possibly a b- and two other b's. did i just screw my self over and loos all my hard work for the past four years? what do you guys think?

drop immunology and retake it... Generally I think the dental schools mean don't fail classes, as long as you're passing you should be okay.

no, he means drop the course and take a W (withdrawl) it'll look better than a F,

is immunology required IN your major? If it isn't i wouldn't even worry about it. Worst case scenario, just take it over at your college during the summer or at another university, if you need it to graduate. If you take it over at a different university, make sure your department head signs off on the course for being counted as a major requirement.

probably should call your d-school and tell them that you will be with drawing from said course, and/or if you will be making it up over the summer. but if you are going to make it up over the summer, i would think you may be able to get away without telling them, not sure though

hope that helps, i hear you, missing class is NOT fun. I scored a 65 on my last exam, but it's ok bc the average was a 55 lol (studied the night before!! bc i was at an interview that day)

A B or a B-???

I think you'll be fine..

If it were a C or C-, then you might want to worry.

EDIT: Oops.. I misread.

Drop it!

funny thing is that if a person who has been accepted with a low gpa like 3.2ish... You just need to get some Cs and Bs to maintain that gpa. :laugh:

Since you will be maintaining your gpa they can't say anything.

To the OP, I am also taking immuno right now, it's a big course, I got little lucky that I got to drop my third exam since we can drop one. You should probably withdraw instead of getting a F.

Good luck with rest of semester!

My school has an early "take a W" deadline too, so I know what you're going through. I'd definitely call the school(s) you got accepted into and talk to them about immunology, and definitely talk to your professor to see whether there's anything you can do or any way you can possibly take an I (incomplete) for the course, which would allow you to finish it next semester. The B's and B- probably won't be an issue. Even if they do drop your GPA a bit they're still decent grades.

Not to be the bearer of bad news but a guy at my undergrad failed anatomy and was told to retake it and apply again next year lost his admissions invite. I hope things work out well for you. This student did get into the same school the next cycle though. the student failed the course in the spring and had no time to retake because the school started before summer semester would've ended. It was not a required course for admission either but a science course. Best of luck.
