Science GPA vs Pre-Req GPA?
Hello, A lot of the PT schools speak about pre-req gpa and I'm curious how that is weighed compared to sgpa. Unfortunately, I struggled in ochem and did pretty poorly in those classes. My science gpa is looking at a 2.7 and overall is a 3.1-3.2. My pre-req gpa (basically not including ochem at all but including psychology/stats etc) would be a 3.5 I believe. I know many PT schools do not require ochem and I was wondering if they would still factor that into my pre-req gpa. I... Science GPA vs Pre-Req GPA? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

I have been doing research in the same lab for about 2 years now. However, I am not close to my PI at all. My works were not published. I am afraid to get a rec letter from PI because PI barely knows me well. Would it better not to get a get letter from PI and get a rec letter from a dentist who knows me pretty well?
