      You're right about waiting for Dec 1st. I still can't believe how competitive it's going to be this year. I'm just hoping the DAT doesn't ruin the rest of my app

        I can see why they tell you not to give out any obvious information that would help identify you in these forums...I could totally see some desperate students pulling a Tanya Harding on some of the 25+er DAT people...not that I would.

            There are some amazing scores this cycle, but its not like there weren't any last year either. Don't stress yourself out with the 23+ scores here, SDN only constitutes a very small percentage of people who apply. Also, most of the SDNers are devoted people who are out to get very high scores.

              I am surprised how not 2021323123123 123 =123 123 people replied to this post. I am sick of seeing those Desi (Indian, pakistani) pre- Pharm, Dental, Med.....I honestly dont know how you all expect to make a living in the end because with diversity comes a choice of going to a Doctor you feel comfortable with. PLease know that I am not trying to be an ass or even sound racist but I am saying what is on many people's mind. at least in my university, in New England.

                    I think you should mind your own business, and let people go into whatever it may be, whether it be medicine or prostitution. I don't see any one questioning your decision to become a dentist. And I don't think you should worry about anyone making a living cuz no1 is going to ask u for money if they are not surviving. People go to doctors because they are confident in them and their ability to diagnose, and not what country they come from, or what the color of their skin is. Please let me know what school you get accepted to and I will try not going there. Take care.

                      wow, this is the most mind-numbing post ive read here in awhile. By, the way, just saying, "I am not trying to be an ass or even sound racist," does not clear you of sounding like an ass and being a racist. i cant believe im responding to this idiot but this guy seems like a terrible person

                        he is jealous of group of people working hard and trying to do well.....sounds quite familiar. And then he has the balls to say i am not racist...this guy makes me wanna vomit. Honestly, i really hope wherever I get in, I don't have to deal with people against indians, or asians who are doing well. If you have the capacity to study all night and forsake ur life, then by all means we should respect it and not take anything aways. Bentalscholar, i don't say this for anyone, but i hope you don't get into dental school

                            This guy/girl is funny...what race are you? I could easily make a stereotype about your race? White, black, East Asian, South American, Canadian, French...take your pick, what are you?

                            I think this guy/girl was mad when you all were taking about your high DAT scores. :laugh:

                            Or has too many indian friends that havent treated him nice. :)

                              Eh Gandu, watch out for the foul language, I just gave my opinion and we ironically are in a free country with my complete right to give it. Yes I have seen the way indians and pakis act here in the US and I have to tell you it is different; although not bad but sickening they all act with high ethnocentric acts and pride, I honestly do not know why. Mind you I am the first in my classes, at Cornell, with plenty of desi around. And know that god gave brains to all his beings and he didnt give you guys a special version so do not say that infront of anyone because it stresses my point about pride and show off. I did not mean to offend you guys and I appologize if my words caused bad feelings.

                                  This guy has a point. But most races have some point of ethnocentirc acts. IF this is true, you should be mad at east asians, african americans, spanish people and even caucasions.

                                  I bet the Next thing you say will be that your a girl's night out is a conspiracy of sexism to destroy men.

                                        lol....i can see this guy having columbine shooter personality. Amsie and gator, I think we need more than a couple of sessions to see why he hates us so much. He seems hurt, haha. Don't worry man, its alrite, bring on the hate, we r ready....it does come with success.

                                          To all of you guys, Desi's that is, good luck with your applications and I am sure you are all nice people but there is a large number of you around and all have the same attitude. My interference was stupid and irrelevant but still the issue is out there. I have lots of friends from the middle east and asia but more from the US and europe and it is because of mentality knowing that YES I am half indian :) and was impressed with your position against me. let us all wake up though and watch out for our attitude will lead us to places we wont like in the future.

My interference was stupid and irrelevant but still the issue is out there. I have lots of friends from the middle east and asia but more from the US and europe and it is because of mentality knowing that YES I am half indian :) and was impressed with your position against me. let us all wake up though and watch out for our attitude will lead us to places we wont like in the future.

                                                so youre blaming your belligerent attitude on your indian half and using your non-indian half to argue with us :confused:

                                                        it also explains why u could only get to cornell, and not harvard or MIT. Don't give me BS about how cornell is so hard to get into, i had gotten in and I rejected them. If anyone tells me tuna (yes indian ppl don't eat tuna) smells better than curry, they need to take their head out their ass. So left side is curry, and right side is tuna, nice. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: You definitely amuse me while studying for my physics midterm, I am loving it.

                                                          HEy hey, tuna is a good source of protein. I eat it all the time. Maybe because Im big on fishing.

                                                          I Especially like those new flavored tuna from starkist.

Specially, because in westwood at UCLA, during lunches, all indian buffet are filled with white people.

                                                              Curry doesnt smell that bad. eh.

I don't plan on applying until May 2007.....can I take the DAT this sept even if I am not applying until the next cycle? I want to take it this Sep so that if I don't do well then I'll be able to retake it before May 2007. Thanx and good luck to all those that are preparing for the DAT. The test is beyatch!!!!

                                                                  It is really not the best post after all these posts in this thread. I would like to comment on your signature though, if you are praying to god to get into dental school, then you should do it in secrecy between you and him. This is the goal behind religion ppl and sadly you are, the desi, the reason for the problems muslims and specifically arabs are facing in this world. Do you see jews or christians going around praising their relationship with god? I am from a country of many many religions and sects and I can tell you that we were taught to practice religion at home and keep it there, for it is a bond between you and your god and not for everyone to see. On the other hand, I hope you get into dental school and keep working hard just like every desi. kudafez
