    Well here is my story I?m in my 3rd year of my 5 year university. I?m an Information Systems major and after working for the IT world for 2 years I realized that it just isn?t for me. So I?m going back to my elementary school career dream of being a dentist. However I?m really scared of not getting into dental school because I?m taking the BARE minimum of bio/chem./organic chem. /physics and finishing up my IT Bachelors at the same time. So I was wondering if you guys could answer the following questions for me.

    1. If I?m applying for dental school for the fall of 2005 should I be taking the DAT in the summer of 2004 or would taking it in the spring be better?
    2. Should I be ok w/ the DAT if I only take the core science classes? Can I survive the test before I actually take the science classes?
    3. Does anyone know what dental schools in the PA/NJ/NY area have programs that deal with dental information systems in their curriculum?
    4. Where can I find out the stats for previous applicants and who got accepted?
    5. I know that applications to Law School are up, is it the same story for Dental School applicants? Did the economy cause more applicants to dental school?
    6. Do dental schools care if you?re not a Science Major? Does anyone actually know anyone with an IT degree who got into Dental School? If so, what school?

    I?m so sorry for being such a pain. It?s just I have no friends or relatives that applied to dental school. And I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thank you in advance for anyone who replies
    :D
