Hate to be another "chances" topic, but I guess Im just hoping for some assurance since there are a few weaknesses in my application. Im applying to NECO, ICO, and PCO (NECO is my top choice) Most of the other schools require more classes than I have the time to take considering my non-science major and minor. Should I consider applying to more? My stats are as follows: Non-science major, 3.60 GPA (3.05 Science) competitive university, if that matters. 350 AA, 370 TS What Im worried about: - I did not take any science courses other than the bare minimum required for admission, e.g. did not take Biochemistry and other courses that some schools recommend. - I got a C+, B-, and W for Bio I & II and a B and C for Chem I & II respectively. - My science LOR is probably just okay since I am not very well acquainted with the science departments at my university. Likewise with my LOR from an optometrist since I got it from someone I shadowed for a few days/hours. Nothing bad, but definitely not high praises. However - I got B+s in Ochem, Physiology, and Microbiology. Yay for upward trend? - Also have a very good recommendation from a social science professor. I could probably get another really good one from a lecturer, but I feel that might not be necessary. Should I try to take more science classes to boost up my GPA? Or will applying early kind of off-set the 3.0. I dont see how it would help if they arent going to see those grades when I apply Thanks so much in advance for your input(s)!
