I have similar stats with slightly higher DAT (23) and GPA (3.3) and got 4 interview so far! I definitely think you have a chance but I'm applying as well so I don't really know ;).

I will say at one of my interviews they said my GPA was "Fine" so your GPA might be below AVG but I think DAT makes up for it!

Really, thanks! That makes me feel a little better, I am just so worried about my BCP. When did you apply? 4 interviews is awesome!

I think I had everything in mid-June so a bit earlier. I think the key is just to look up stats for schools and apply accordingly. I got interviews to some schools where I though I had no chance and some school where I had a good chance haven't sent an invite yet.

Yeah thats why I thought it was so hard to pick schools to apply to lol. I applied to 14 though and thought I made good educated guesses on where to apply. Do you mind me asking where you got your interviews?

Sure, I got invited to UofL, UK, UDM, and Iowa. The Iowa one is surprising because their avg gpa is really high.

I also have lower GPAs and higher DATs. 3.25 sGPA and 3.14 BCP with 24 AA and 25 TS. Applied toward end of August and got 1 interview already! If the rest of your app is strong (shadowing, ECs), I'm sure you will get interviews. Keep your chin up!

I do research at a dental school, have a ton of shadowing hours, and have been dental assisting (I got certified summer 2016) at a free clinic for the homeless. These are pretty much my main ECs right now, upon numerous leadership opportunities during my undergrad, so I hope those are good enough!
