Hello, I am currently a junior majoring in Biology B.A. I have a 3.24 cumulative gpa and I am struggling to maintain. I have tons of extracurriculars and community service involvement but my grades are suffering and I'm going downhill badly. My grades for prerequisite courses range from B's to C's and I even have a 3 W's on transcript. Overall I'm not showing any progress and I know that will kill my chances of getting into dental school. I've been considering transferring over to a new school and starting all over like as a freshman again, to build my gpa back up and start fresh. Most of my peers that I've discussed this with think that I'm crazy for having this idea but I truly feel like this is what's best and they just don't understand because they aren't pursuing a career in the medical/dental field. If there is anyone who may have experienced something similar or started over fresh and could give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it. I've emailed my advisor from my school and then the admissions office of the school I am looking to transfer to, I'm just waiting on their responses...
