You've given me a lot to think abt..appreciate it! The time constraint issue is definitely a major factor.DAT is much easier. The DAT is like 2 college finals stapled together. The MCAT, as you have found out, is something else entirely.
To put it in perspective, the DAT questions are discrete questions that showed up on the MCAT. Reading comprehension and critical thinking doesn't play as big of a role.
Plus, ur a non trad. Dental school is only 4 years before you start practicing and making 150k+. Medical school is at the very least 7 for family med. those 3 years make a diffrence when you are looking to start a family when ur in the upper 20s. Believe me, I'm starting to feel the pain of time constraints as a mid twenty something.
