Hi everyone!
Do dental schools care if I take the physics series all during my senior year? I will have taken all other prerequisites by the end of my junior year. I ask this because this would mean that I will take the entire physics series after I apply, so dental schools may think I'm intentionally doing this to prevent my physics grades from affecting my application GPA (which I'm not; it just makes much more sense for my schedule to take physics senior year). I appreciate any input on this topic!

You're fine. I changed my major, so to finish in 4 years, I have to cram all my science classes in the other 3 years. I'm taking and will finish the Phys series my Senior year (and biochem too) = this year. 5 interviews, so I doubt that will affect your chances. But senioritis hits me hard this year, so I'm slacking off quite a bit. Make sure that won't happen to you :D.

Thank you and congrats on the 5 interviews! hahaha tbh I'm looking forward to seniorities... from what I hear, its perfectly fine to get slightly lower grades after you apply, especially since dental schools know you're gonna be missing classes for interviews :)

Have to get an acceptance first before slacking

Yeah I agree. I was just saying that dental schools will probably understand if you do SLIGHTLY worse than usual because many people will be traveling for interviews and missing multiple classes. I think even after you are accepted, you still have to maintain a fairly good GPA so you can never slack off too much.

I am taking my physics 1 and 2 this year as a senior and I am currently applying to dental school. As long as you take it before you matriculate into a dental program you're fine!
