I am trying to figure out the best moves for me... I am a Post-Bacc student in Bio 2, Physics 2, Orgo 2, and all the labs this semester. Additionally, I am taking a Dental Assisting course, so that I may have a job until I martriculate. I plan on applying this May for 2010. When should I be taking the DATs? I was going to take it in June but some people say take it in May in order to have the opportunity to retake again if things don't go as planned. While taking all these courses, is it possible to study for the DATs to be ready in time for May? I also signed up for a Kaplan course, do you guys recommend it or can I just study it all on my own with this kind of course load? I did also plan to take either Biochemistry, Microbiology, or Anatomy over the summer while I study for the DATs. If I take the DATs in early May that will be fine. I feel that if I am taking it later in the summer then either take Anatomy or no classes at all. Taking the classes has its advantages especially because I will only have the minimum requirements. What do guys think or recommend? Unfortunately, I have not met any of my professors and I was going to have the one that I got an A in write me a letter but they obviously don't know me that well. Should I risk it and have them write one or do I wait until the end of this semester? Waiting obviously is going to increase the chance that application would be completed later. What should I do?
