    ..ok so i take my DAT on wednesday..thats THREE DAYS!! im SO nervous!! is there any last minute tips anyone has to offer? also tell me honestly what you think my chances of getting into dental schools are...im going into my third year of college..so basically im tryin to apply a year early. 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.
