Pretty sure you read enough Chance Me posts to know what's coming.. but here it is for you:

"Slightly below avg GPA will hurt you. Non-US citizen/PR will hurt you. DATs are good, but closer to last year's avg. 20 schools is good. Apply broadly to all private schools."

The advice is the same as the previous poster.

Are those DAT scores from the American or Canadian DAT? If from the former, give Columbia a shot, but if it's the cDAT dont bother since they heavily prefer the American DAT. Penn doesn't care, so apply there for sure.

I applied last cycle with similar DAT scores (Canadian DAT) and a higher GPA (I'm assuming since i don't actually know your GPA) to about 10 schools (including Penn, but not Colmubia). I would suggest you do the same if not add in a couple more schools. ECs, research, and GPA seem to be priorities that Penn considers, based on people I have talked to. So gauge where you stand in regards to that.

Good Luck.
