ok you guys, i am really frustrated. sometimes i think it should have been better if i just went to community college after high school, cuz you'll get easy A's there. my gpa would have been so much higher, and hence my chances of getting into dental school would increase. then again, a university has much more opportunities available than a community college does. also, i don't know how it works with the dat - do people that have gone to jc have higher scores or not, or are they equal? if they have higher scores, then i'd be reaaaally depressed in going to UCI.
