Well an upward trend and maintaining good grades are all a plus. You are by no means at a disadvantage. But I'd worry about those early mediocre grades since the DAT will cover those courses.

Didn't realize that the OP had originally taken the DAT. What is your GPA? So far it looks like you are in good shape.

My pre-professional adviser recommends that students with lower than average GPAs and DATs should look into podiatry. Just a recommendation.

Ridiculous post. Don't listen to this nonsense OP. Just make sure to apply to a good amount of schools, including the price private ones, and rock the interviews!

These kind of posts remind me of Dumb and Dumber when Jim Carey is asking the girl if there's a chance of a girl like him and a guy like her getting together..... sooooo you're sayin' there's a chance!

Back to the topic at hand, yes you should be able to land a few interviews with scores like that. I had a rough start in college but brought my scores up and they took notice to it in the interview. If it's a major issue you could always retake the class just to prove that you now know how to study and were just getting acclimated to college back then. I don't think you need to do that. If you have an in-state dental school you should have a very strong chance of getting in. So yes, I'm sayin' there's a chance! A pretty good one.

Your stats are solid. I don't think you will be at a disadvantage at all. Just apply to 10+ schools. Don't do what some people did on SDN applying to <5 schools.
