Hello friends, I am in a confused state right now. I started out in undergrad with Computer Science and that didn't go well at all, I switched over to Biology, did better in that, but my overall GPA ended up being a 2.0/4.0. I dealt with a sick parent the first three years of undergrad while attempting to work and attend school which is the reason for the low GPA. Awful I know!! Well I knew I wanted to go to dental school and that GPA would not suffice so after I graduated 2 years ago, I did an informal post bacc, retaking the 3 prereqs I received a C or below in and upper level bio courses such as Immuno, Microbial Patho, ect. I've taken 45 credits worth of post bacc courses and have a 3.7, I did very well on the DAT, 23/AA and 21/PAT. That 2.0 undergrad GPA concerns me very much. I have tons of shadowing, volunteer and research experience. What can help me? Any and I mean ANY information will be taken into consideration.
