Hey, This fall I'm going to start my 6th year in undergrad. I've been going on and off the whole time, a few good semesters, then a failure...rinse and repeat. This is slowly killing my GPA and I really need some strong consecutive semesters to show that I can handle it. Even though summer break has just started, I'm already dreading this coming fall. There is a local dental assisting program that is fairly short and inexpensive. I'm thinking about giving the program a go. It would be nice to learn about the profession and get some real experience. After it is finished, (hopefully)I could land a job for two years or so, and then hit the books hard and continue on with my education. Has anyone done something like this? Anyone have an opinions? Thanks!
