I am in the under 3.0 category. I have been rejected from masters/post bacc programs, what would be a good logical next step? I would like to find a job that is relevant to the dental career that I can do while maybe trying to retake some of the core pre-req classes that I didn't get such good grades in or train to be a dental assistant. That leads me to another point. Should I try going the dental assistant route first before I try to apply for dental or masters/post baccs? Would the work experience as a dental assistant help my chances in getting into dental school? I appreciate you taking your time to read/respond to this post.
