    Would you agree that the scores on predent.com is inflated since most ppl who use it are keeners?

    Id say so because its user reported. I would have to assume its mostly higher end students who don't mind showing off their stats and I'm gonna make the suggestion that applicants lower on the spectrum probably don't even know about websites like predents.com or sdn.net for that matter.

    I think this is the exact reason. The students willing to scrounge the internet for a site like predents.com are also willing to study their asses off and get great grades/scores/volunteer hours. Not to say they're "keeners"; they're just providing a cross-section of the interested/hardworking.

    I was thinking about this too...

    For example for NYU, the GPA listed is 3.14 but most of the scores shown are nothing less than stellar only 2 or 3 people with GPA's around 3.0 the rest have 3.7~4.

    Same for pacific....Although


    it does show you what kind of DAT scores you need to get into dentistry if your GPA sucks. People with 3.0~3.2 needed all 20~25 across their dat to get in.
