Hi there, I go to a dental school that doesn’t rank, but I got a 166/161, AWA 4.5 on my GRE and I’ve been told my GPA of 3.65 is a little bit on the lower end (and since I’m a D3, it won’t go up that much before I apply this summer) so I’m not sure if my GRE will make up for it. I do have plenty of research but no publications, though I will have presentations. I also do have extracurriculars and volunteering as well. I guess I’m just a bit discouraged by my GPA, but I’ve also worked insanely hard for it.

What school do you go to? That plays a big difference
