I am wondering if I would be even considered for dental school. I attended a 4 year university where I took alot of time to complete my degree, I repeated alot of course work. I worked a fulltime jon for a large company for many years, while I attempted to complete my degree. I have a BS in biology and a chemistry minor. Now the repeated courses work would show me either failing the course initially and going back and doing very well. I dont know how serious anyone would take a student that gets a failing grade then retakes the same course and gets an A. I am now 34, so I am not within the younger age group of those who would attend DS. I have been out of college now for 5 years. I am considering taken up an associate degree in dental assisting and I wonder if that would make a difference. Any thoughts?
