    Hi
    I was confused about DAT prep since i am a foreign trained dentist, already done with NBDE part 1 and 2 and this DAT was a new hassel and frustating. NYU made it eligibility for us too. I am so much thankful that i m telling about it to all
    I found a very good online tutor .....her teaching is very good plus she send assignments to practice every day ....that kept me on track..... i did not even know what books to follow .....believe me i got no books at all and i did not have to do anything other than the course ....just 1 month and i was done and luckily i scored very well
    u can also contact the same tutor for help.....i dont think they have any webpage or something i was referred by a friend who also took the course.... but i do have email ...it is [email protected]
    the course really saved me ...such a relief
    Its really worth doing!!!!
    good luck everyone

    Its weekend ........she usually dont work weekends .....u will surely get reply
    I got an old kaplan blue book from a friend which also i did not do completely
    i made notes with her lectures and did the practice questions from the assignments she sent
    that saved me money also because i was confused about which books to buy and must have spent a lot
    her lectures are already a summary from many books

    also i m not very hard working ...for me even this much was enough .....u can ask her for study material i u want !!!!!!!

    what is your DAT score nitu?
    ...................SC............PERCENTILE
    PAT ........... 21 .............87
    QR..............30..............100
    RC..............21............... 80.2
    BIO.............20................80.3
    GC..............29................99.7
    OC..............26................97.7
    T.S..............21................91.3
    AA..............24.................99.6

    I dont even know what score should be best for school but she said my score was perfect
    I wish i would have know about these classes before NBDE ....i must have been in dental school now
    I am doing TOEFL with her now even that is outstanding .....i hope i do well
    good luck all

    Q.. did NYU increase the number of years in Advanced standing program?

    I completed scores .......I guess yes there is enough time ......i know lot of people preparing right now ....all those are yet to apply
    i have friends in NYU ... they told me that Due to DAT very few applications are there this year ....so less competetion ......they suggested me to take DAT as soon as possible

    Lets see what destiny has in store

    I agree. There is a very high chance to get accepted to NYU this cycle since not very many will be giving the DAT

    if 2 or 3 of us can think then other 600 can also.
    and here comes a real eye opening converstaion that i went through in sep/oct2011
    Mr X- hi, hw r u
    Mr Y- i am gud hw r u , i am worried i should get into dental school this year through one of these interviews and bench exams.
    Mr Z- me too, have you read on ada from jan 2012 nbd wont hav scores hw will universities grade us though
    Me- yaah even i am worried abt this.
    Mr X- DYU and another unv are coming up with DAT as the requirement.
    Mr Y, Mr Z, me- (collectively laugh and say) are you crazy thats the high school stuff exam. some one has fooled you.

    Mr x- no i meet a bunch of people who already have started prep on DAT and they know approx 20 30 pplwho already done with DAT

    Mr Y, Z- even we shd get started if we dont get in we shd get DAT done
    Me- no way. u guys dont understand it will never be the way u say,

    aug 2012 more than 500 appl already in the university with DAT. i feel myself as the biggest fool :mad:

    cant u ppl see why only 7 8 of us are talking here and approx 2592 views

    accept the reality, we can decieve ourself but not the truth.

    but thumbs up for who all done i no way wanted to demotivate anyone. just kindof a realoity check

    If quality candidates pass NBDE 1&2, whether they want to take DAT, spend 360K, and 3 years?
    DAT=go back to childhood:(

    if you dont want to practice dentistry in NY you dont need 1 year residency
    its only who want to practice dentistry in NY even if they are graduates of any other school

    as far as residency is concerned, i must give you guys a word of wisdom: very soon most states will require a residency..so its always better to do one !!!!

    I know one more school requiring DAT, but it is only for NBDE part 1 takers whose results were evaluated with PASS/FAIL system. The school does not require DAT for those who took part 1 before 1/1/2012
