Hey sdners, long time reader, first time writer here... I just wanted to see if anyone is in the same boat as me. Most dental schools I've talked to have said they look "favorably" on steady academic improvement and factor that into their decision when looking at gpas. My freshman year, before I decided to be pre-dental (i.e. no pre-dental classes taken yet) I completely bombed. Terrible gpa. Since then I've improved each semester and my current gpa is around a 3.3-3.4. My freshman year put me in a mathematical hole, however. So far just one interview and no word from anyone else. Is there anyone out there that has been accepted and faced my same dilemma? Can anyone else offer insight?
