Hello all SDNers,
For all those students who have been admitted to dental school I was just curious how you did in the following classes to see how I compare to those who are accepted already, or in the past. Oh, and can you also list which schools you got into?
Thanks a TON!!!

Just out of curiosity...

Does anyone happen to know if the admission officers look at your entire transcript (like the AADSAS grades), or the 8 GPAs derived from those grades?

I've seen some people post A+'s. I've never heard of schools doing that. Is it still a 4.0 or does it bump to a 4.3 or something?

Well, my school puts A+ as a 4.0 when they calculate the GPA. But i believe AADSAS bumps it up to a 4.3. Not sure about other institutions though.

Yea, I guess the portion of the GPA that includes +'s could be a 4.3

The +/- system sucks...my school will give +'s and -'s for anything, but they are not willing to let us have an A+/above 4.0 if we earned it...seems like they should need to balance out the grading system- if there's an A-, shouldn't there be an A+ too??

the ivies have A+ = 4.3 so you can graduate with above a 4.0. wouldn't it make more sense for AADSAS to make the A+s 4.0s though? cause most schools don't give out A+s even if the students deserve them

4 admittances without a single A in a basic science? You must have destroyed the DAT...

I took a lot of upper level science and got almost all A's in those (physiology, genetics, evolution, anatomy, inorganic chem, etc) and I got a 21 on the DAT, my non-science grades were also above 4.0 (get 4.3's for A+'s)
