Well here is my story. Im 19 years old and a Sophomore at Loyola University of Chicago with a Biology Pre-Dental major. My uncle is a dentist and I have been assisting for him for about 2 years now, and I have learned a lot about the field. I have practiced preparing teeth on dozens of models and Ive learned how to read xrays, take alginated impressions, so on and so on. Unfortunatly all this doesnt get you a degree or might not even help get into dental school. So here is my problem, Im stuck here at loyola taking an extrordinary amount of core classes that I have no interest in and I'm having a hard time getting through the basic crap because Im not good at having a large variety of classes. If I was able to focus on one subject like, oh say, Biology or maybe Dentistry I think I could do well. But with my insane core I feel like a scatter brain. My GPA right now is a little below 3 on a 4 scale . Basically what Im asking is, if Im not aceing everything now, am I heading up the creek without a paddle? Is my experience working in the field going to do anything to help me get into Dental School?
