I was getting like 23-25 in the Barrons QR and Kaplan and I got aa 17 on the real thing?? The angles also were horrific....

Congrats on finishing your DAT.

I think you've shown that you have a strong probability of success in dental school. Emphasize your interest in the profession if you have it. School is only 4 years. A profession is a lifetime of getting up everyday and working on teeth. I know when you're on the outside looking in its all about the scores, but its really about a whole person. Will you add to your school and the profession? Your scores maybe average, but I would assume you are not? Time to sell you. Good luck. Where are you applying?

Thanks, that is very very true, I had to think long and hard before quitting my phd program to take the masters and it was a good thing that I shadowed my dentist because it proved to be a very fruitful experience. Based on that and other experiences, I am pretty confident that dentistry is a field i want to get into, I'm applying to ne schools mostly, bu,tufts,nyu,columbia,newyork at stonybrook,umich (I'm an alumni and dying to go back=)), uic,upenn,temple,.....thatz it. I'm hoping to get into BU, do you think I have chances of getting interviews? I just turned in my apps last week and aasdas is still verifying my gpa....so kinda late, what do you think?
