My overall GPA is a 3.61 and my science GPA is a 3.42. I interned with a general dentist for two years and have been an assistant with an Oral Surgeon for the past year. I was the president of ASDA last year @ my university and the DAT chairman this year. I'm also the president of the SASA organization @ my university this year. I've taken several practice tests..the ones offered through Kaplan as well as the one provided by ADEA and i made 18s on Kaplan and 20 on the ADEA one and my PAT has been around 20 on both...you think i can get in? and wht is a good score to shoot for on the DAT?!?! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP!! =D

Are you going to finish in 3 years? Cause most schools nowadays don't really like applicants without a BA or BS by the time they matriculate into dental school. If you have good DAT scores and your GPA looks fine then you still got a chance...but there are fewer and fewer non-degreed students entering schools.
