    GPA 3.4, Canadian DAT Academic 19, PAT 21, with lots of dental related experience (i.e. cranofacial research, dental outreach to Peru, reference letter from dental faculty). Do you think I am ready to apply? I am not sure how compeptitive private US schools are. Do I have a pretty good shot at private schools? Thanks!

    hmm what was your percentage? i dunno if the canadian RC is any different than the American, but some schools in the US really look at the RC

    I think RC in Canadian DAT is hard b/c each passage is longer and we only have 50 min. to do it.

    If that is true, I am sure the adcom will accomodate your RC score. Why don't you take the US version of DAT and let them know that you can do better on the RC? Does the 90 day rule apply between Canadian and US version of DAT?
