Dear whom it may concern, Hello. I have some questions about my situation on applying to dental schools . I graduated in 05 from with a degree in Marketing and minors in Health and Science. I, middle of my 20s realized that I want to pursue my dream career, dentistry. I have always been interested in dentistry so I took some pre-req science courses in my undergrad years such as Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and one semester of physics. I still need to take Organic Chemistry lab and the second part of Physics. My overall GPA was 2.9 which is not great. Above is my situation and here are a few detailed questions.1. Since my overall GPA is not outstanding, what are my options about raising my GPA?Some schools offer post-baccalaureate programs for individuals who want to go back to take prerequisite coursework for medical or dental school. I am not sure if this suits me since I already have some credits from science classes. If I can do this program, will it replace the courses I took before? 2. If I didn't do well in those science courses I took, will retaking those prereqs replace my grade to raise science GPA? I would apply as a non-degree seeking students and take some of the prereq courses I need, is this correct? If I get a good grade by retaking courses, I believe it would show a dedication to imrove my application; I am not sure if it will actually help my GPA. I would really appreciate it if someone can advice me on my situation. Thank you very much.
