Your Pre-Dental Planner

Overview | Freshman | Sophomore | Junior | Senior

Intro to Sophomore Year

Congrats, you survived your freshman year (and more surprisingly, dining hall food). You're no longer a lowly frosh, and you know what that means...no more getting booted from frat parties! Well, maybe, but it also means it's time to start getting your act together.

You may gain some advantages (especially socially) by being a sophomore, but you also lose the ability to get away with "freshman mistakes." Professors are generally more understanding toward first year students. By your second year, they presume that you know the ropes and can take full responsibility for your actions (or inactions).

Keep your dental school goal in sight, use the study skills you obtained last year, and in the immortal words of Jerry Garcia, "Keep on Truckin!"
