    I took a bio class twice in a CC and made two D's!! I took the class again at a Public School and made a B so will the aadass calculate all three grades into the GPA and science GPA?
    Thanks for the input guys!

    Yep, all of the grades are calculated into the GPA. The B looks much better than the two Ds, but those two Ds really pull down the B as far as the GPA goes.

    ItGavinC is right. I have repeated several classes and it brought my AADSAS gpa down significantly. Take hope in knowing that some schools look deeper into the application before they give you the ax. I have a gpa slightly lower than average and my DAT score was only 18/18, but I have received two interviews already and I will be meeting this next week with two other dental schools in regional interviews. So there is hope! Take comfort in that. Good luck!
