This. At my school it's not at all infrequent for students to fail courses and have to remediate or even retake the year. I know many who put in unbelievable hours and still only squeeze out Bs and Cs. People excel at different things, too - some in the classroom, some in the clinic, some in both/neither. But all who are devoted and put in the effort will get in and get out. Having a thick skin helps.Lo
lol try telling that to the kids that get held back for failing certain classes... Or the kids that have to makeup failed classes in the summer, or the ones who drop out for hands skill issues. This is defintely not the norm but I really don't like the phrase "the hardest part is getting in", because at least at my school i don't agree with that-- if you don't put in a fair amount of effort you will fail and will be held back.
If dental school is the end game, why the unnecessary stress of a biomedical engineering major?Fascinated that this thread began when i was 4! I'm going to begin my undergrad as a biomedical engineering major and am having doubts in myself if i'll be able to perform well enough in all aspects to get into dental school aka GPA, DAT, letters of rec. Any advice on how to stay focused on everything at once? Or does it all fall to you naturally being in pre-dental?
