Hey guys,

It's been a long struggle for me, but my dream of getting into my #1 choice has now been realized. I graduated from UCSD with sub 3.0 gpa for both Cumulative and Science gpa back in March of 2003. So in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a dentist, I enrolled in a post-baccalaureate program and completed my pre-reqs with a 3.8 gpa. Also, this was my 2nd application cycle and really tried to make a good impression and be knowledgeable during my interviews about the schools I interviewed at (i.e. my interviewer at NJ said in his own words "I'm so glad to hear that from you.") Well, I got into my dream school, which is UMDNJ this afternoon :thumbup:. Last year, I was rejected by UMDNJ post-interview. So to everyone, please keep your hopes up, and as soon as I get confirmation that my acceptance deposit was received, I will be withdrawing my application from all other schools. Thanks for all the information guys. Happy early x-mas!!!

Just playing with you.

Yea maybe its just a saying to some and maybe some businessed put it on their windows and signs because it takes up less room.

I dont care. Just watch Tv and read the news papers, this year is so bad.

People are afraid to death to say merry Christmas, its Happy Holidays, or the holiday season, etc.


Thank goodness they didnt ask me this in my dental school interview. I would have just dropped my head to the desk.

Actually, I was so nervous, I am lucky that I had good credentials cause I blew it bigtime.

Oh well.

I give up on this topic!

Thanks! Temple was my second choice and when I called the office to see whether or not I was accepted, it was kind of disheartening to learn that I was still under-review instead of getting an early acceptance...well good luck at Temple!

Hope to see you there also!!!

Thanks everybody it's awesome to get some support. I didn't even list my interviews in the official 2005 interview thread since I didn't want to get over my head. I wanted to be humble throughout this whole process so that I will get what I deserve...and I'm so glad my dream came true!!! :D

:cool:
I took all the general classes such as bio w/lab, chem w/lab, physics w/lab, ochem w/lab and about 5 upper division classes (microbio, biochem, heredity, bio of human sexuality, and physiology.) it was close to 50 semester units and a non-certificate program.

I took some general sciences at UCSD but I did not really try hard, so I ended up getting average grades. With that in mind, I entered into the Post-Bac program and retook all the general sciences w/lab and the 5 upper division courses. I took microbio with some of the general science courses. Then the next semester I took biochem and physiology with one of the physics lab I had to complete. Then during summer I took the heredity class and bio of human sexuality. So, no I didn't take it in one semester. I wouldn't recommend that as grades are the most important...

I agree, grades are most important, i'm just trying to get a feel for the max. post. bac. credits i should take in one semester, while working full time as well.
Thanks for the help. ME :cool:
