Their application deadline is in February. Once your materials are submitted and that’s all you are waiting on I think you’ll be fine. Lots of people are taking exams late. If you take October 26th your official scores will be in around the second week in December. I would just say let that be the only thing you are waiting on. You’ll just probably post December interviews & acceptances if your stats are good.

You’ll be fine.. my gen chem scores were bad on Bootcamp but I scored higher than practice tests! I didn’t need a calculator on my real exam either... don’t overthink you’ll do phenomenal! Good luck to you.

If I submit my application this coming week, and am taking my DAT on Oct. 8th( had to change this)
when do you guys think I would be hearing back from the university?

Your DAT will take 2-3 weeks to be official. I’m thinking if it takes two weeks minimum they will get it around the 3rd week of October and then their decisions go out Dec 1st up until the class of filled so probably next year for interview invites, or possibly even before that I think it depends on how fast they get on to things.... and if they even take unofficial scores ( they may review if you send unofficial scores on the 8th)... just get in everything as soon as possible so that’s the only thing they are waiting on, if you do really well you’ll hear from them regardless. Your not really too late.

Edit: Just realized I answered you already Earlier in the thread you’re probably looking for another opinion.

Hey guys, I am applying next cycle but not this, I was wondering if howard requires a committee letter or are two science professors and one dentist sufficient enough? I graduated two years ago and my university does offer committee letters, however I already asked my professors and dentist to upload their letters of rec to interfolio over the summer in preparation for next cycle.

I think most schools are either or. Either you have a committee evaluation or two science prof and a dentist (if they require a dentist). I think you’ll be fine If they are science professors. I would email them to make sure or call. I think schools generally lean towards committee letters though
