    oooo, that will be tough man, try to keep up your grades. They do say in most acceptance letters to keep above a C in all courses. Work your butt off for that Pass. You wouldn't wanna risk it, especially since so many people are waiting to get your spot.

    You could retake it in the Spring! Most school requires to submit the final transcript one month after the first year (dental) starts. Technically, you still have summer I which ends in July to retake it but don't wait until then. Even you fail a course (less than C or even F), you still retake it. As long as you complete the pre-requisited courses with FINAL (even retaken!) grades greater than C. If your current college doesn't allow you to take both courses (retake Anatomy I and enroll Anatomy II) at the same time, you could take it at other university or a community college nearby (local). Don't tell them (schools) you currently are enrolling at other schools, because they might not let you do so. Don't be panic! You are already admitted!!! Congratualtion! :luck: :luck: :luck:

    I want to add ...
    Don't think that you could substitute it with an advanced course. They just need that exact course (for compliance). After you already have accepted, you don't need to take any extra course, but you still need to have a BS degree if your program requires it.
