Hey all, just finished my DAT and have applied to all of the instate schools (from Texas so applied through TMDSAS). Before I fill out the lengthy ADEA application and pay hundreds, if not thousands to apply to 5-10 out of state programs, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on whether or not it would be worth it or not. The schools I have in mind have a high out-of-state student matriculation rate (Colorado, Arizona, Miss-KC, etc). Here is a brief summary of my application:

University of Oklahoma - Biology Major (Honors)
GPA cum - 3.72
GPA science - 3.6

DAT - (21 AA 20 TS 23 PAT)
BIO - 20
GC - 19
OC - 21
RC - 22
PAT - 23
QR - 21

Please let me know if I should go ahead and send out my application elsewhere or if I should just stick with the Texas programs.

Thank you!

Of course you should also apply OOS. A year of a dentist's income is worth more than the few thousand you pay to apply more broadly.

I would apply to at least 5 schools in total. I have similar DAT to you but my GPA is 3.95,3.96 and I applied to 5 schools. 8 would be safe, and 10 would be the limit. Apply to school with GPA averages that are realistic for you. In other words, don't apply to Harvard, Columbia, etc, cause you ain't gettin in!! Best of luck!
