    The UNLV acceptance letter doesn't specify what grade must be obtained for remaining pre reqs. Does anyone know if it is the standard C ?

    Sorry, I don't know. I don't have any more pre-reqs to complete for UNLV, and thus my letter says nothing about that.

    Bump!

    Not sure if he means there was something specific on his letter, but I am assuming we all got the same one.

    On the form that you send back in for the deposit that came with the actual acceptance letter there was a general thing at the bottom stating that you are still required to complete all pre-reqs and that they will check official transcripts before matriculation.

    Sounds pretty general to me so unless it named specific classes I would guess all of ours said that.



    FYI here is the pre-req list from UNLV taken from their website:


    PREREQUISITES


    All prerequisite courses and units listed below must be completed by June of the year of you intend to enroll. However, we highly recommend that applicants complete prerequisite courses prior to filing their application or taking the Dental Admission Test.

    Course Prerequisites:

    1 year of General Biology with lab
    1 year of General Chemistry with lab
    1 year of Organic Chemistry with lab
    1 year of General Physics with lab
    1 semester of Biochemistry
    1 year of English

    A minimum of the following units are needed upon application:

    90 semester units, or the equivalent completed or in progress at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada. (30 of the 90 semester units must be completed at a four-year institution).


    Additional suggested preparation courses/skills include:

    Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Immunology/Genetics, Histology/Microanatomy, Public Speaking, Art, Sculpture, and Business. Computer skills are highly desirable

    I'm missing physics II and Biochem.

    I'm just wondering what they mean by "successful completion".

    C or better? (not including C-?) or maintain gpa? or other?

    Why don't you just call and ask? People on here could tell you anything. Nothing better than getting a solid and valid answer from the school.
