Hi, I finished my freshman year with a 3.7 gpa with only a couple 3.5s in nonscience classes (4.0s in bios/gchems/labs), then saw it drop down to a 3.2 by the end of my soph year with a 2.0 in orgo 1, physics 2, and a 2.5 in psychology, calc 1, calc 2, physics 1. I also failed orgo 2 that semester(0.0 because i didnt even go to the last exam nor the finals). i turned things around during that long summer when i spent a good amount of time thinking about what had happened and worked my @ss off last semester to get my 4.0 in physiology I, human gross anatomy/structural biology, ecology, biochem I, and this semester im farily confident im going to 4.0 physiology II, biochem II, orgo 2 (RETAKE from 0.0 soph year), intro physical chem, and probably 3.5 microbiology these last 2 weeks. I've been living off of my books for the past 7 months that I'm fairly optimistic about doing well on the DAT when i take it this summer. The rough stretch during my soph year (gpa of 2.8 during that span) was due to just lack of motivation and just plain not caring (never went to class for weeks at a time, luckily managed to 4.0 some filler classes to totally not bomb out of school). Failing orgo 2 brought me back to reality and ive been hitting the books like a madman ever since. my question is that since i will be having a 3.9 over my last 40 credits (mostly upper tier science classes) if things go as plan these next 2 weeks, will this strengthen my transcript enough to take off the weight of a horribly poor sophmore year of failed easy classes and grant me admission to at least SOME dental schools, assuming i get adequate DAT scores (say 19s/20s/21s), or did failing ORGANIC CHEM totally ruin my chances? Also, my scheldule has been quite light credit wise as each science course is only 3 credits, having taken only 14, 15, (12 SUMMER) 12, 12, 13, 15 credits each of these first 6 semesters. How do u think thats gonna affect my admission also?
