Members don't see this ad.
For those of you that are trying to get in for next year, what will you do if you don't get in? Is it alright to try for a graduate study and then try again. How do most schools look at that? If you are in a graduate study then try to pursue dentistry?

I did exactly that as a matter of fact...

On my first attempt at applying, I could not get into a dental school. Presumably my GPA was not spectacular (3.0), since I did try all the other tricks in the book (lots of research, observing, applying early, a 21 total on my DATs, what have you).

So I worked for a while and attended a masters program in biology, maintained a 4.0 GPA in the MS program, and got into two pretty good dental schools on my next try.

Yep, going to a graduate program first is definitely an option..
