To Rak and Navy:

I made a post earlier today and was told I could still get into Dental School and then I was told twice that I shouldnt report my credits from community college. I didn't think it was proper, but maybe this is different?

Either way, could you check out my post and see what I mean as it pertains to that, and if your willing offer you advice on my first post as well.

I called my bro who is a third year and he said I probably wouldn't have to report the grades. I wonder who would have the "right" answer.

Third Galaxy, I'm going to try to clarify what I think PDizzle was saying, because I don't think that he was saying not to report your grades to your 4-year or dental school. In fact, you could face expulsion at your 4-year and d-school if you neglect to turn in your transcripts from every school that you attended. I think he may have meant that you don't have to have your transcripts sent to your new CC. The benefit would be to have a transcript solely showing your recent commitment to school. When you transfer to the 4-year, you will have to send in all of your transcripts. My 4-year doesn't include my CC grades in their GPA calculations. AADSAS will include them when they make their GPA calculations. As far as sending your previous transcripts to your new CC, that would be for you to decide. Frankly, I don't think they even expect you to or care, but if you feel weird about it, by all means, turn them in. There's no way around turning them in to AADSAS or your 4-year, though. I went to one CC for a month and had to drop out due to work issues. My transcript from there is just 3 classes- all with W's (no GPA!), but I still have to send it off to everyone when it's transcript time. There's just no way around it!

in response to both:

all i know, is that when you submit your aadsas you are told to submit a transcript from EVERY college you attended. that would include community college. if you feel that these grades will hurt you, you can always address it in your personal statement. if you like, you can call some of the schools that you are interested in and ask them what they would prefer. most likely, they will want ALL of your transcripts. on aadsas you basically sign a statement saying that everything here is complete and true to the best of your knowledge. better to be honest and up front than to get screwed cuz you didnt submit a cc transcript.

I probably shouldn't have put words in someone else's mouth. Apologies to PDizzle for assuming I knew what he meant. What I stated above is my own opinion.
