If I've been accepted to my state school, would a C or something make them take the acceptance away? Do they even look at the grade update? I only had 9 hours left to graduate but looks like I might get a C in one of my Bio classes.

Contact them, some schools have a minimum GPA/letter grade requirement for the remainder of your classes.

Side note: If you're considering going OMFS, 6-year programs look at your undergrad GPA.

Every school is different. Some schools say a B (UOP), some said C (Minnesota), and some said grades consistent with what you submitted to them. Every school is different so you should call them.

some say contingent on successful completion = passing = D and above

I'm pretty sure no school will take away your acceptance over a C unless it's one of their core requirements and even then I'm sure it's unlikely.

Depends on the school. I dropped 3 courses (non-prereqs) since I applied in June and changed my spring 2014 coursework a little and the dean said it was OK.

Generally, that's true for undergrads. Dental schools, however, will not take anything below a C. C- is considered failing.
oh fk please tell me this doesn't apply to every dental school.....

when i talked to one of the admissions officers at one of the dental schools i interviewd at, she told me they're okay if we get below C in a NON pre requisite class. but prereqs need to be C or above. and if you happen to get below C, we can retake over summer or something. so im not sure what to think now...

It applies to every dental school. Below a C = C- and below.

Yes, I know what you mean. This is BEFORE dental school.




Do it.
the admissions officer that i talked to at the school.....was she lying to me? she said if it\s not a prereq, i can get below C as long as its an (undergrad) pass.......

What a dilemma

Which school did you call? I called 15 schools when I was applying and they all told me the same thing.
