My question might sound lame, but just a thought. If I already have a bachelor degree but is currently not satisfied with my GPA, is there any way to raise it before applying to dental school? As in, if I take some community classes and score high, will they add to my current GPA? Or is there any other available options out there? Please help. Thanks!

CC classes will factor into your GPA, but it will be pretty obvious that you are padding your stats. If you don't mind me asking, what is your GPA?

Thanks for replying. My GPA is 3.33 and someone mentioned that I'd have to score 20+ on all my DAT section to be able to make it to a dental school (I'm hoping for one in CA, specifically Loma Linda). And I know that getting a 20+ is extremely difficult so trying to find other methods. If you have any ideas I would love to hear it. Really appreciate it. THanks

You can try a post-bacc program.
