Hello! I am a 35 year-old pharmacist interested in applying to dental school. I need to know if I should apply directly to dental school or obtain a post-bacc. degree first. My overall GPA is 3.16 and my science GPA is 2.75. If I score well (>19) on all portions of the DAT, write a kick-butt essay, and obtain a diverse plethora of dental experiences, is my chance of admission hopeful? Or should I just get my Master's and apply then? By the way, I am > 8 years out of college. Has anyone made it to dental school with the GPA's I mention here? I'd appreciate any constructive advice! Thank you in advance!
