I recently took the DAT and got 18 AA. I have a GPA of 3.4, leadership positions, work experience and research experience. Majored in biology. Science GPA is around 3.0. I know it is really late in the cycle, but when I asked around some people said that I still have a chance to be accepted for the class of 2020. Any advice on what I should do? How will this affect me, if I apply and don't get it. Will applying next year with the same stats at the beginning of cycle give me better chance? Thanks in advance!

I would apply next cycle, tbh, if you want to save yourself money. Unless you had like insane stats it would be pretty tough to find a way in most schools this late in the cycle imo, because the candidate pools are so big by now.

If you apply next cycle, apply EARLY (1st batch = optimum)
