    I AM SO HAPPY. MY #1 choice accepted me. I am ecstatic. THANKS SO MUCH SDN. THANKS everyone. I didn't want to check anything or answer phone calls but I couldn't control myself. Thanks, Drhobie, jk5177, mochafreak, comet, spgover, aphix, cowsgomoo. Thanks to all of you. This acceptance means a lot to me. I'll withdraw my application from all schools to give others a chance. I've had many ups and downs in the past many months. I must thank all of you for all your support. Please, if I said or did anything wrong plz forgive me. Thanks a trillion, everyone. Without your support I would have no chance to get accepted to a WORLD CLASS UNIVERSITY. I can't believe this. I wish all of you the best of luck & happiness.

    Raises the question doesn't it... What would drive a person to lie about their stats (in a negative way)... when we all know that it is not humility?!?!?!?

    Not gonna tell anyone where he got accepted because all his classmates at his new school will interrogate everyone and unmask this ever evasive dat-student and then hunt him down and tickle him, give him indian burns on his wrists and then take half of his lunch money.

    No, that's not how things work in dental school at all - it's the faculty that will do this to you and as soon as you can learn this the better.

    Look at one of his old sign offs (unless he changed them all already). He changed them after receiving so much flack about his lack of humility . . .

    I would say He has Very High DAT scores. I can also, say that he has very High QR score too. He is smart dude but not Mature enough. he used to be active on DAT forum and back then he knew some real good stuff. I can;t say anything about GPA though.

    Please keep in mind this is purely conjecture. I imagine his DAT score puts him in the 99th percentile for AA and TS and probably PAT also so figure 24 plus for each of these with one of the individual sections (Bio, Chem or such) at 30. GPA figure 3.8 plus or minus 0.1 (however I would not be surprised if his scores were a little lower). My best guess is that he is applying to or has expressed great interest in DDS/DMD/Ph.D programs. His posts indicate an interest in research and I remember seeing something about UCSF paying him to do research which would further indicate this. I don’t think they give research stipends to pure dental students. This might also help explain his great success in gaining interviews/acceptances. There is currently a shortage of dentists looking to work in academia and pursue research careers. A student who expresses interest in this especially if they have a track record of previously doing research might be highly sought after. I wonder how close I am.

    Regardless, congratulations on your acceptance/s, wherever they are.

    Dat_student must feel so special with all of this attention. Just incase y'all don't know, the best way to get info about a subject from someone that isn't willing to talk is to ask once or twice then totally ignore the subject. Even when the person tries to taunt you with it, act like you don't care. the person loses that 'edge' they think they have over you and most times they'd be begging you to listen to what they have to say on the subject. You just have to be VERY patient. it works all the time. So dat_student, no offense but, you may shove your scores all the way till they pop out of your mouth. :D

    What?

    Polarnut should change his name to something more fitting. How about Susan, Fruitcake, Sissy, Ladybug.

    Read this guys old posts. He thinks he is a troll detector.

    Dont call me a name again fruitcake.

    why thank you for reading my posts. welcome to the forum. and thats mr.fruitcake to you! :)

    sorry, you just signed up and your first post was to make fun of someone who was elated he got accepted to the dental school he wanted. thats usually a glaring sign of a full-fledged flaming troll. :smuggrin:

    and please please stop private messeging me using profanity. that one got the last troll to mysteriously disappear from the forum :(

    a little sensitive are we? saying that race is a factor in dental school admissions is hardly racist. It's fact.

    Just to make sure...

    i'm not being called a troll am I?

    Also, GIVE ME A BREAK WITH THE RACE CARD. The dude just said it depends on nationality,

    I couldn't think of a more PC way to say that. Your hypersensitivity is a joke, good luck being a dentist with that thin of skin.

    dat student Spotting Guide:

    1. Look for someone wearing female clothes. No, she's not a transvestite.

    2. Look for someone whose mother tongue is not English.

    Can't say any more.

    that explains a lot. Seriously.... think about it.

    Although I have to say, I find it harder to dislike him/her/it knowing that it's a girl.

    wow, someone called me a racist, just b/c i think that some minorities have advantages over others. dat_student told me he was mexican, i think this improved his chances.

    but calling me a racist.. i really think that's uncalled for.

    Hey Dat_student, you and me we've had our ups and downs,...well...not really, I guess we've just had downs. But I want to congratulate you on getting into your number one. Great job. By the way if English is your second language I apologize for making fun of you, cause I know how tough it is to express yourself sincerely and accurately in a foreign tongue. Have fun in dental school! :thumbup:
