Hello,
I'm planning to apply for next cycle in the upcoming May.
However, I do not have the physics requirement fulfilled yet and plan to take it over the summer (it will end in mid-august and marks will be out by end of august).

My question is, if I do not have physics pre-req fulfilled, is my application considered to be submitted after pre-req is finished even if I apply in May (assuming I have everything else in place)?

Anyone who's gone through the same or similar experience?

Thank you for your answers in advance :)

No you don't have to have physics completed. There is a place on adsass for classes completed as well as courses you plan to complete. So schools will know your intentions. This does not look bad, nor does it make you a less competitive applicant. I'm currently taking Phys I, and will take PhysII in the spring, and already have been accepted to a few schools. So don't worry about it. Best of luck!

I did the same thing -- am currently in Physics I and am taking Physics II next semester, but I did get accepted at a few schools!

The thing is, this policy is different for other dental schools. I still haven't even heard from my state school even about an interview because they value pre-reqs so much more. Just make sure you call and check what the policy is at the schools you're really interested in.

Good question. I am I'm the same boat. I'm allying in May and haven't had any physics yet. I'm eager to hear other experiences.

Hi guys,

I know this is an old thread but I didn't want to start a new one about the same thing..

Did anyone ever hear back from their dental schools?

I'm planning to take physics II my senior year spring, after when interviews and applications, and possibly acceptances are over. Does this hurt my chances at dental schools? I'm assuming since it's not on the DAT it's not as important as the other pre reqs.. so is it okay to take it later?

no because physics is not a major component of your application (unlike biology)

Yea I was curious about the same thing as well. I haven't taken any physics either.

I'm in a similar situation (taking Phys II this spring and also finishing up English; these are the only courses I'm taking as otherwise I am working) since I just graduated but need to finish up some prereqs for applications. I don't believe it hurts our chances as long as you make your intentions clear of taking (and finishing) the course. And once you have an acceptance, who cares? Just barely pass the damn thing. :p
