    One guy in my school got acceptance from UofP with 3.1 GPA, 20 DAT scores, and
    around 120 hours shodowing experience. Does Uof P like people with as high DAT
    score as possible and does not care too much about GPA?

    I've heard that because they are a 3-yr school, it is very intense, and therefore, they favor applicants with high DATs. I think that my DAT was my downfall (20/17) because I do have a high GPA and worked full time as a dental assistant for a general dentist and volunteered as a dental assistant for a orthodontist/periodontist. Also, another thing that worked to my disadvantage is that I am from a small, "no-one-outside-of-PA-has-ever -heard-of-it" school.
