I received a C in a 6 credit calculus course would I have to retake the course to get accepted into Boston University? Or any other dental school for that matter ? If I had to retake it I know I could do better because I received a B+ in the course with a horrible teacher but my final brought the average for the class down to a C=(. However since it is a 6 credit course I would have to work my schedule around this one class if I had to retake it so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know!
-thanks

After reviewing the admissions pages for Boston U., Harvard, and Stony Brook (just the school's I knew off the top of my head that required Calculus), I see nothing that states a required grade in said course. So, tentatively, I would say you do not HAVE to retake it. I've "heard" talk of a C- or lower in a pre-req requiring a retake, but I don't see it at the "Calculus schools".

My suggestion is that you call Boston's admissions office and ask them if a C in a pre-req course is acceptable.

Calculus is the craft of the devil.

Not answering the question I know. But I feel your pain.

I've posted this before, but I think the time is again right:
