I'm currently in a dilemma regarding the application process. I'm reading all these threads and looking up class stats and I feel really iffy about my chances. My science GPA is a 2.4 (at best), but I'm taking a bunch of science classes this year to hopefully boost it up, but not in time for it to show on my application. My overall GPA is a 3.2. One semester of college I was going through a lot of personal problems and got a (1.7GPA), but ever since then, I've been consistently getting >3.5 and have been on Dean's List ever since that semester. Obviously bringing it back up has been pretty difficult. I'm taking my DATs in October and am banking on a 22/23. I was thinking if I should just apply next year and apply for a masters program where I could replace most of my poor science grades. For reference, I only recently got into shadowing and because of my poor science grades, I haven't had the chance to develop close relationships with my science professors so I wouldn't be able to get good LoRs from them. I do a good amount of research and have good ECs at school. Someone please enlighten me.
