    I have submitted my app and will take my DAT at the end of July.
    I have a 3.0 CC GPA
    I have a 3.4 University GPA
    Overall around a 3.2
    Was a dental assistant for a year
    Worked at a dental lab for a year and a half
    Have many dental/nondental volunteer hours
    Have a semester of biology research experience
    Will graduate this December
    Do I have a chance this cycle? Please be honest.....

    you really don't know until you get your DAT scores.

    Other than that, your stats are competitive.

    With a 21 AA on DAT you should be fine. :)

    Some good news: your CC gpa is the one pulling you down rather than Uni gpa. :D
    When are you talking the DAT? Are you taking it?

    Someone in here posted a formula, seems about right

    y= -6 (x) + 41

    X= your GPA
    Y= DAT

    I think you should be fine with a 21 AA too.
