      I would say you have a great shot at Boston University. They tend to take people with shaky grades...just as long as you are willing to fork over the 1/4 million dollars for the education.

        True, do you think that it increases my chances a because i am an electrical engineer? Does that work to my advantage or not really? People keep telling me that schools like that but i dont know.

          Rezzdog, the guy that gave me the tour at Case was a former engineer who went to. He wanted a change of career and applied to dental school. He made it sound like they thought of it as a positive.
          Hope this helps.
