Hi, I want to know from you members what the application process is like. Here's my backstory: I was interested in becoming a doctor at one point of my undergrad studies, so I took the general science classes. Nothing really shook my boots until I got into O-Chem where I made the drastic decision to withdraw and accept the letter grade W. What threw me off the pre-med path was the pressure to do everything at one time and to get it right. There was also that lack of student-professor interaction in clarifying concepts that seemed vague. Relieving myself from this pressure cooker did make my life simpler, but I still can't resist entertaining the thought of someday ending up in the medical field. Now that I'm in my senior year as a History major, I'm confused as I once was like in my freshman year over what to do post-graduation. All of my history friends have law school on their minds so they're taking time off from school to focus on the LSATs. Some of them have impressive C.V.'s that includes internship experience clerking at city firms and mentoring inner city kids. I haven't completely decided yet to commit myself to law. Lately, I've been thinking about going to the pre-dental path. I could enroll in a post-bac program, get all the prereq courses out of the way and then commit myself to this application process. I've visited a few sites detailing the admission statistics to see what these schools were looking for. In a way it was shocking to me that they could reject a pile of qualified people, this could easily be me in that pile. I want to know before I commit myself to this path what obstacles am I going to face? Is it common for someone qualified to be rejected by 5 or more schools? What kind of community service and/or extracurricular activities are they looking for? I've already taken General Biology, Chemistry and Physics and those science courses average out as a 3.0. My math courses (Calculus I, II, III, Linear Algebra) averages out to 3.8.
