Hi, I stumbled on this site while searching info about the dental profession. I think I may want to start taking classes at the local comm college to meet all of the pre admission classes. I live in Texas(Houston), and have a BS in Aeronautical Science with a GPA of about 3.5 or so. I have been a pilot flying for a major airline for the last 8 years and can qualify for just about any flying job out there that I could want. My college courses for aviation did not include any of the science courses. I am married and have a 2year old and another due in a couple weeks. My plan is to take one class per semester until I meet the requirements to apply. Who knows , I may take 30 mins of Biology and not want to continue. Is this reasonable? Will schools frown on the fact that it took me two or three years just to complete the core reqs? The only classes I have is the English requirement. If I continue with the classes and passed all of the admission tests, I could decide if this is something I may want to do. Of course, getting through dental school and juggling my family and finances will also have to be considered. Flying is #1 for me, but I want to be in a position to have another career to consider along the way. At least have the entry requirements completed. Anybody else out there that that took the long way? Thanks for your help.
