For pretty much all dental schools, a course grade below 75% (C-minus) would be considered a failure of the class, so you would need to retake the D. I can't really advise you on your academic advising policies but usually "biology 1" is a prerequisite for most schools. You'll need to connect with admissions recruiters about your situation to see if any "year of biology" coursework satisfies their requirement..I am doing better in school. Raised my 2.4 first semester freshman GPA to a 3.3 ish, not all my grades are in yet. I know my GPA is low, but I'm trying. Anyways, I was wondering if I should retake my biology 1 course, I got a D. My Dean said I can't retake it, but I read up on my school manual and if I somehow get it changed to an F, I can retake it, the newer grade counting towards my GPA. But, some dental schools would count the F I'm assuming... I was told on another thread it won't be accepted but I have other biology courses that aren't D's- won't those count for dental school? I'm a bit confused. I am planning on retaking my orgo 1 grade (i got a C) for next fall, I got an A in orgo 2 but it was online due to corona so i dont want them to think it was an easy A..
No one will believe an A in organic chemistry comes "easily", even under current conditions. You're fine there.
