hi, I'm in my senior year as a Bio Major.

I've looked into the option of switching to Public Health.

As a Bio major I'd have to pack my next three semesters with 3-4 upper year Bio courses ( Histology/Developmental Bio/Ecology/Evolution/non-dental school pre-reqs etc) in order to graduate. If I switch majors I'd just finish up 6-7 Public Health courses and receive my major.

The only two science courses I'd be taking would be Human Physiology & Orgo II.

Stats:
3.77 GPA / 3.66 sGPA / 3.35 BCP GPA
21AA, 22TS, 19PAT

I don't want to hurt my sGPA / BCP GPA by being force to overload on Bio courses.

Any opinions?

If you have all your prereqs, I'd say switch.

As long as you are 100% committed to dental I would say do what you want. Your stats are good you should get in. Schools have moved away from pre-dent and premed majors because they want you to have a fallback if you don't get in or do get in and don't like it.
