It seems to me that average GPA's for accepted students really are rising at a fast rate. For example, at my state school, LSU, average accepted GPA last year was 3.44, and this year, as of now, is currently 3.65. What a jump in one year. Do you guys also anticipate this trend? My major concern - is my 3.5 GPA going to be considered low in a cylce or too? Are people with GPA's less than 3.5 going to have enlist in post-bacc programs to raise their GPA's, or am I letting all of this stress get to me? Please share your input. Thanks

Do your best and stop worrying. So much can happen. Maybe the whole world will suddenly want to get into dental school and the weed out factor will become the possession of dual dual l MD/PhD MBA/JD degrees. You can't control the cards you are dealt, but you can control how many chips you bring to the game.
