Hi, my GPA is pretty low, so I am considering to apply for either master's or post bacc(?).

Here are my questions.

1. What schools have post bacc programs?
2. How to apply for the program and how long is it?

Thanks

there are 2 way to do post-bacc...

1) informal, meaning you just entrol into any university and just take courses, you plan your schedule, you do everything (this is what I did)

2) apply and get accepted into special post-bacc programs designed for pre-med / pre-dental students. My underestanding this, these formal pose-bacc courses start you from scratch (100 level biologies, 100 level general chemistries, your 2 orgo courses and all thier labs)

Check the post bacc forum on here, there are tons of information. Although, most of the posts are for pre-med, you'll find quite a few for dental.
By the way, not all post bacc are necessarily lower division classes. Some are academic enhancers with upper division science classes.
