I work 30+ hours per week for a dentist. I am taking chem 1 (again, got a c the first time by not studying at all), and bio 2 (same thing) this fall. I have a friend that got into d school with a 3.3 gpa and a 2.8 science gpa!! but a 20 on the DAT. That motivates me enough to sign back up for courses after 3 years of non school. My overall gpa from my degree is 3.5 but my science dropped to 1.6 because i left to another state and didn't drop my courses when the semester started. The school offers forgiveness of 3 grades which i have to use all three. This should boost my gpa up about a point. So im taking this seriously since i have to complete 9 courses and can dramatically change my future. My goal is to bring my sgpa up to a 3.2 at least. My degree was in arts so i wasn't accustomed to studying and lately, since my goal of being dental school, I've decided to study at least an hour per day to chemistry and just finished 2 hours today of only chemistry. I read, take notes and practice the inchapter problems and the ones at the end. If i work from mon-thurs 9-730pm, and have a wife at home, whom i have to pickup/drop off at work, how can i set up a good studying schedule? The rule of thumb is to study at least 2-3 hours for every 3.0 credit class. Meaning 6-10 hours per week per class. Im taking 2 sciences this sem, what do you recommend?
