Members don't see this ad.
I wanna know if anyone has heard of acceptances/interviews w/ someone having similar statistics as myself. I applied w/ a 2.95 science gpa & a 3.2 cumulative & i have a very positive trend (all A's last semester w/ difficult science classes & not quite as good of a gpa the sem. before that). my dat scores are:
aa: 19
ts: 19
bio: 19
gchem: 19
ochem: 20
Pat: 20
RC: 19
QR: 16

i applied to schools all over and still havent heard much back. i did a few supp apps and paid a few dues, but thats mainly it. uop is my top choice btw. let me know what you guys think..

You are just going to have to wait and see...that GPA isn't helping you at all, but you never know. You may get in somewhere...keep your fingers crossed.

it seems like people are generally doing worse this year on the dats.. i wonder if thats true. and if it is, maybe my not so great score will appear better comparatively. :/, i'm looking for all the hope i can get if u cant already tell

If you don't get in this cycle you should continue taking classes. If last summer was the start of your upward trend then you need more, at least 2 semesters of A's in order to solidify that trend. Don't get discouraged if dentistry is what you want to do, continue the good work and it will happen!! Good Luck!!:thumbup:

Upward trend is always good. You should be proud of yourself getting straight As with those difficult science classes!

Anyways, your GPA is similiar to mine (I have a 3.3 overall ) I think your DAT is solid, although it should probably be better to compensate for your GPA. Just keep your faith, you never know what'll happen.
