Hey guys,

just wanted to share my story and hopefully motivate others. I have attempted the DAT in 2015 and 2016, and today was my final attempt. I went from a 17AA/18TS to 21AA/23TS. I am a walking example of how people can reinvent themselves. My undergrad GPA was a sub 3.0 and I got in to an SMP and finished in 1 year with a 3.71GPA. There's always hope and never give up on and look toward the light at the end of the tunnel. I know what it is like to be a sub 3.0 gpa applicant. You wake up each day not knowing what you're going to do with your life and often are left hopeless. HOLD IN THERE, work hard and it will pay off. Believe in yourself!

Congrats!

Can you post your BC scores?

And how is the bio section of BC compared to the real exam?

I love seeing big jumps in score like this - if you can find the time, it would be great to hear about the differences in your preparation before vs. after. Great turnaround and persistence!
