    Hey everyone, I was just curious if dental schools require your transcripts if you've already been accepted? I fulfilled all the requirements for most schools my junior year and my senior year has just been filled with electives like pharmacology. I've already interviewed at a few schools like Nova, Temple, and Tufts and will hopefully be getting accepted in December. Has anyone heard about \transcripts being required post acceptance, specifically from these schools?

      I was talking to a dentist that skipped his last semester of college before dental school because he found a gig framing houses and had bills to pay, but that was back in the 70’s. You’re gonna have to send them a transcript as part of finalizing your acceptance.

        Yes, any acceptance letter you get is going to say their offer is "conditional on satisfactorily completing degree requirements," and they're going to have you forward them your final transcript when you graduate. You don't have to finish with straight A's, but letting your GPA take huge a nosedive in the last semester is maybe not smart and you def have to pass/finish.

          Yes, you have to. Please be careful with this as there are cases of students having their acceptances rescinded due to failure to submit all transcripts in a timely manner

            There are also cases where requirements have not been satisfactory and weren’t found out until the official transcripts came in. We had a student in our class that started with us but was removed from the program after about two weeks because there was a discrepancy with their transcript.

              Yes, I saw something like this too!! It sucks to work so hard to get to that point only for it to end that way. Please be careful about all of these little things, I think there's a general tendency of taking things easy after getting accepted and thats just not the case. Unfortunately acceptances can be conditional and you want to watch your back for these little things after you get in, especially if you're accepted when you are still in the process of completing requirements. I'm guessing either the person didn't do well in the course or they dropped a class that the school had required them to take?

                Oh damn! What was the issue?

                Yeah, it was pretty unfortunate. I think the issue was there was a pre-requisite course that was submitted as completed but they didn’t actually complete the course. I didn’t hear from the administration what the issue was but that was the general consensus.

                It could have been a misunderstanding or an error with submitting information, it’s just really unfortunate because it took away a spot from someone else.
