I am going to be graduating from UNC soon with a B.S. in biology and a GPA ~2.5 and a DAT score of 21. I have 100+ hours of shadowing, 200+ hours of volunteer work, I was the president of my sorority, and I'm involved in several other clubs/ECs. I have also worked as a dental assistant (radiology certified) for a year now. My GPA is very much average for the rigor of both my school and my major, but obviously at a glance it sucks. Especially when you compare it to predents with womens studies majors from easier schools, for example, who will have near 4.0.
Several dental schools have no minimum GPA, and several others have 2-2.5 as a "soft" minimum. What are my chances of being accepted to one of these schools?
