Hey guys! 1st of all I just want to thank all of you guys for posting and helping the rest of us out!!! I wanna know what you guys think about my chances of getting into any of the 3 TX dental schools for the 2010 cycle. I'm a 3.3(overall) 3.5(science) junior and am a resident of texas(it should be up to about 3.4-3.5 end of next sem). I have been working as a dental assistant on and off (over breaks and what not) for appx. 4.5 years and i LOVE IT!! ( i actually began shadowing my ortho after 8th grade....lol). I also have a semesters worth of clinical experience volunteering/ shadowing. I'm prep'ing for my DAT right now, using KAPLANs lesson book/review notes, Shaum's bio, and a 2006 ver. of DAT DESTROYER...My 1st diag was around a 17AA 21PAT(pre-hardcore study) and I havent taken one for about 1.5-2 wks of hardcore studying. I'm taking the real thing Jan 16. I'm aiming for a 20-21AA! I don't really know any of my professors so LOR's are going to be difficult to come by, but theres no real way around that... (darn d-schools for making us get 4!!!! omg...) Neway, I would really appreciate any feedback on if y'all think I have a legit chance, or what i need to be doing right now (besides studying...) to get my chances up! Thanks!!
