So my brother is applying this upcoming summer and he faces a dilemma. He decided on dentistry a bit late in his undergrad career and is majoring in Business. Here are his stats: 3.75 oGPA 3.75 sGPA DAT- will take in July. So, the catch is he doesnt have too many science pre-req classes out of the way. He only has his 2 gen chems and 1 lower division biology course. This spring he is taking Ochem 1 and Physiology. He asked me if I would wait on submitting his application because he only has a couple of pre-reqs done. He is planning on finishing the rest over the year. I told him it would be smart to wait until the spring term (ends the end of june) ends and his grades for ochem and physio will be posted. Then dental schools will see he can excel in some upper devision science classes. However, on the flip side he'll be a bit late on the whole application thing and that might hurt him. So, I just wanted to get all of your opinion on this one: what's more important, applying early or getting these upper div science classes out of the way?
