    I was reading a phamphlet and it said that you didnt need Calculus as a pre-req for dental school. I am currently trying to get my core classes out of the way along with the pre-reqs for Dental school since I am trying to get an MBA in marketing, is this a good idea? If I take Calculus, even though I don't have to, does it look good on an application for Dental school? Also, if I finish my pre-reqs for dental school with a good gpa and I get a bachelors in Marketing, would that look good also for dental school? Can someone please help me out thanks!

    Major is whatever interests you - marketing is fine. Just make sure to do well on all of the pre=requisites. Also, calculus is always good, and I'm pretty sure that it is required for a bunch of schools. So definitely a good idea to take it.

    Requiring Calc is not the norm for dental schools. Check the websites for the ones you want to apply to. The ones that do not require it could probably care less if you take Calc or underwater basket weaving. I dont think any patients will ask to have an equation differentiated or integrated.

    Calculus may be required for your major, but D schools more than likely won't require it. (I applied to ~20 and it wasn't an issue with any)
