    guys please help me
    i have to make a decision as soon as possible.
    i am supposed to be graduating in about 2 weeks.
    however i got a D in one of my science classes
    once i graduate, i cant retake this class to improve my gpa
    should i put off my graduation until this summer and retake this course?
    on a farther note, my gpa is horrible
    my gpa is 2.8
    i havent take the dat yet
    would i have any chance of getting into any dental schools?
    should i look into post bac programs?
    what should i do??
    please help me!

    What class did you get a D in? Is it a required class?

    A 2.8 is going to hold you back.... You should look in to a post bac or a masters program.

    Also, regarding the class you got a D in.... AADSAS will still count the D when calculating your GPA...

    I agree. Is the science class a dental school prereq? Because then even if you look into a post bac or masters it's my understanding that you can't have anything below a C in a prereq so you'd basically have to retake...
