In Canada, most dental schools offer the "drop lowest year" or "best two year" GPA calculation in its admission selection. Is there anything similar in the US?

that would be lovely here.

Just out of curiosity, why do a lot of Canadian students opt to go to US dental schools? tuition? location?

Mostly due to the high averages needed to get interviews/acceptances. Two thing that deters Canadians from going to US dental schools is a) its more expensive for us international students and b) US dental schools statistically don't accept a lot of Canadians. if it really came down to it, Canadian dental schools are very comparable to US dental schools, and vice versa.
