Ok, brief overview. I decided I wanted to go into Pre-Dentistry about a year ago. I'm currently attending my 3rd year at a Community College about an hour away from where i grew up. My first two years I was a IT/Computer Programming major. I got a job at a Multi National Corporation in a near by city working for their IT department, I made 12.50 an hour to sit and troubleshoot pc's all day. I'm thankful to have had that job, It showed me I didnt want to go into IT. My aunt and uncle in Texas are both Dentists. So I mad a big decision and decided to switch my major to Pre-Dental. Now for the bad part, my entire first 2 years of community college I pissed and farted around. I had a good job and i didnt really worry about school to much. I did terrible i dropped my GPA down to a 2.1 Now my Community College has very good ties to U of I. The pre-dental program I'm in now transfers to U of I (Chicago) Dental School. Now my question is, after this last semester, making two C's and a B (I've never done good in school, I've never had the gumption, but i want to change that) My GPA is at like idk a 2.3 or something. I just want to know do I stand a chance at ever being able to get into Dental School? I just read in an article that its nearly impossible to get into dental school if you've attended a Community College for more then 2 years. I also take a part time load because it allows me to have "income based rent" at my apartment, well that sucks cuz i also read that its almost impossible to get into dental school if you dont usually take a full time load. I just want to know if I stand a chance at all, oh and btw here is a link to the site of my community college http://www.lakeland.cc.il.us/models/transfer/270.htm Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
