i have a 3.1 gpa and 20/20/18 on DAT. Do you guys think there is still a chance I might get an interview from there?!
My friends said the school doesn't accept students with DAT score lower than 17 in any subject. but it seems like their average DAT score is less than 17. what is that mean?
From what i know... Howard takes some of its students without a dat score because they were part of a special undergrad program. Only after the interview do those students need to take a dat and thats why there average dat scores are as low as they are. Iam pretty sure you need a 17 in each section inorder to get in (atleast that is what they told me.) Anyways is anyone coming to howard?
Why would they have to take the DAT after the interview? That makes no sense.
If you think this makes no sense, what until you get there. One thing after another will make no sense at all, and the administration will stop at nothing to justify repeatedly nonsenical acts.
Wait...so did you re-apply, and then withdraw from Howard or did you apply as a transfer?? Just curious cause they made you start over...
Transferring in dental school is very difficult. Most students will lose a year when they transfer no matter how great their class standing, which is why transferring in dental school is rare and not encouraged.
The best thing is to make the right choice the first time around. I applied while I was still attending. I knew it was going to be a long haul, but I was unhappy, and at some point, your health has got to be taken care of first.
Hindsight is 20/20, but look, listen, and feel when you interview at a dental school irregardless of its reputation. Most times, things are not always as they seem.
What excuse did you give to your state school to get them to let you transfer? I heard that you have to basically have a family member dying to get them to let you.
