    This is silly since I havent even taken DAT yet, but I just want to make sure I am not wasting my money/time for writing essays and applying, so I need some help.

    My gpa is really low.. only 3.0 (my last 2 semesters are 3.6 and I started with below 2.0).
    I took a lot of honors classes and didn't do well (ahh how stupid I am... bad decisions). I have one more year of undergrad, so I can probably improve to 3.1 or maybe 3.2...

    My ec is tutoring/research/shadowing for years

    I believe that my letters of recommendation are going to be great (all the profs I asked said that they will write great one for me and I am pretty close with them).

    That's briefly my stat... I know dental application is more than this, but let's say that everything else is decent and I get around 21TS/21AA/21 PAT,

    Which schools should I cross out from the list?

    Boston
    Howard
    LECOM
    Loma Linda
    Marquette
    Meharry
    Midwestern, IL
    Minnesota
    NewYork
    Roseman
    Tufts
    Southern California

    Thanks!

    Unless you're a URM, I would cross out Meharry and Howard. I would also remove Loma Linda (too religious) Marquette (low OOS student ratio) and SC (might be a low OOS ratio too.) add Midwestern AZ and Case Western to the list.
