Do Cali D-schools care for the PAT?

    So right now I think I could pull off at least a 18, but what I am really trying to ask is how important is the PAT?
    I read through all the dental school's pages and I only found UCLA to say it is the second most important section after TS.

    THANKS

    I would think an 18 is a good solid score to get in. Anything higher of course will be better though.

    i dont really think PAT is that important. It is all bout your GPA and academic avg (AA) DAT score.
    the rest are secondary.

    Not always true. Some schools really like a high PAT score, others don't give a crap. Just call the schools you are interested in and see what they say.
