Hi all: I've been reading on here for quite a while, but have never gotten the nerve to post anything, but now that time is ticking away, I figured what they hey, I need to speak to others who are in the same boat. This really doesn't apply to those of you who are skimming the edge of a 4.0, but more for those who are closer to the 3.0 range. I've got a 2.95. Until the beginning of last year, I was really screwing up because I come from a double-whamy culture--Italian Arabic--where you are to do what your parents want you to do career-wise. I broke free, and am now pursuing this dream that I've had. My grades have improved significantly, I shadowed a dentist for almost 2 years, have 2 great recos and 1 not so great one (I think). DO I stand a chance?
