hey everyone, i was just wondering...
is there any type of formula with your gpa and dat score that would make a good applicant? i know for medical school they have one where you multiply your gpa by 10 and add that to your mcat score and if that number is a 65 or above, you are a good applicant for an MD school.

so a person with a 3.7 gpa (times 10 = 37) and a 30 on their mcat is a very good applicant because the final number comes out to 67. thanks in advance!

There are a lot of other factors involved.

I have a 13.4 but only 1 interview. Others with lower have as much as 4 or 5.

Which should both be taken into consideration...ESPECIALLY international status. American Dental Schools should cater to American students.
true that to be honest...but Canadian schools don't look at anything except GPA pretty much...

i should've a) worked harder in undergrad b) chose an easier school lol
