What are my chances. Non-traditional app to Dental

Recommended Posts

cGPA 3.48

Chem 30

Bio 19

AA 23

PAT 21


my GPA sucks because of Engineering at UofT (still graduated with honors and top 15% of class)

Worked 3 years after UG in engineering as nuclear design engineer, lots of leadership/EC during undergrad. can get plenty of shadowing and dental lab experience.
