Pre-Dental
Hello!

I actually a few questions. To give you some background on myself, I am a pre-dental student graduating this coming semester. My GPA is pretty low (2.9), I have withdrawn from a few classes in order to retake them (chemistry isnt my best subject), and I am graduating without taking/passing O chem, O chem lab and biochem.

The plan that my advisor and I have come up with is to take my DAT this summer, graduate with my bachelors degree, apply for a masters degree in Health Administration at the school I attend, finish by summer 18, and hope to get into Howard dental for Fall 2018.

I was wondering if you maybe I should try to do my masters at the school I wish to attend for dental (Howard). and if you any of you know anything about their masters programs, and if i would be able to incorporate the chemistrys I still need to take while doing my masters. And what do you all think of Howard dental in general? I know it is low ranked according to smartclass.com, but it still seems like a good school thats within my range considering my GPA.

Thanks in advance for your responses!

Are there upper division science courses in that masters degree?

No i don't think so. I posted the link below that shows all the classes, however I can incorporate O chem, ochem lab and biochem into the curriculum, it just won't count toward the degree. Also, i was avoiding a major in like Biomedical sciences which i believe would have upper division science courses, just because the point of the masters is to raise my GPA... and you need a gpa of 3.0 to get accepted and I'm short of that.

I wouldn't avoid biomedical sciences. Those are the courses dental schools look at the most.
