    How do you get over a 4.0 is it like high school where classes are designated as honors/AP so you get higher or do you get more points for an A+ or what?

    Gotta love the upward trend...it is a little frustrating though when you get nearly 4.0's for 3 years straight and your cumulative doesn't break 3.4.
    Dental schools will notice the trend though. Keep up the good work.

    I thought A+ = 4.3 on the AADSAS conversion chart?

    I am in a similar boat, my first year GPA was 2.5 and second was 3.9 and third should be quite a bit higher! It's a shame I wont be able to break 3.5 in 4 years, I have to stick around for a 5th to get 3.55 or so.

    Upward trends are overrated :p

    I'm had a worse semester every semester since I began undergrad, the ultimate downward trend :laugh:

    Finished with 3.5 cumulative after starting with 4.0, still got in. :luck:

    so for everyone who doesn't have a 4.0+, keep yo head up! you still have a chance... :xf:
