    Hey guys,

    I wrote the Canadian DAT on November 2th 2013 and here were my scores:
    RC 23
    Biology 18
    Chemistry 18
    Science total 18
    AA 20
    Perception 21

    My cGPA is 3.43, and have just completed a masters (course-based) with an A average. I also have an extensive list of extra-curriculars.

    I'm a Canadian citizen and was wondering if you guys could tell me some U.S schools that I have a shot at getting in? Particularly those that are known for accepting Canadian students?

    I am also a Canadian. Honestly, I would apply next cycle for the following reasons:

    1. You are pretty late
    2. Being Canadian won't help
    3. You need to do a lot more research (I started planning out which schools I wanted to apply to months in advance by using the ADEA guide and looking at school sites)
    4. You wrote the Canadian DAT (only a handful of schools accept the Canadian DAT...hence why I decided to write the American DAT)

    My advice would be to fully prepare yourself for next cycle and do some research on schools you have a shot at (again use the ADEA guide).
