    So, I am applying to dental school this cycle and I was wondering if taking the DAT between August 16-18 a bad idea. I have all of my applications filled out with the exception of my personal essays that is still being revised. Is the time period to take the DAT a little bit late or am I okay with testing on one of those dates?

        What's a like really prestigious dental school?

        i mean high ranked schools like UCLA, UCSF, USC, UOP, columbia, UC of michigan
        i didn't mean to pick only these schools (i mean i do wanna go there) but there aren't a lot of schools that i can apply since most school srequire either ANat or physio or both, and some schools don't take community college units. So i'm pretty limited on which schools i can apply to and the ones that i can apply are really competitive to get in like the ones i mentioned

        Those schools are not necessarily higher "ranked", but most of those are more selective. Dental schools have no rankings, unlike medical schools.
