Hello everyone,

I am a New York resident and this upcoming year i will be graduating. I am studying for the DAT and taking it in October. I am aiming for a 21-22 AA on the DAT.

What schools should i consider applying to and what are my chances? I am applying up to 15 schools and i don't care applying to schools in the west coast.

Info will be listed below:

Overall GPA: 3.31
Science: 3.17
DAT: TBD

By the time i graduate, My OGPA will be about 3.44 and my science would be about 3.34.

What I participated in so far:
1) 350 volunteer hours (Will be more by the time i graduate)
2) 100 shadowing hours
3) RA experience (semester long)
4) Vice President of the Pre-dental club
5) Free private tutoring for a semester long
6) Worked in retail during college for about 5 months
7) Attended many dental school impression programs

Have you already applied? Or are applying this June 2018?

Im asking because I don't know many people who have taken the DAT October.

You do have a chance at applying to dental school with your GPA. That said, it's hard to say how well you will do in the application process and which schools you should apply to without having your DAT score. The higher you can score on the DAT, the better your chances are.

Columbia may be a bit of a reach. Also, ECU is very OOS-unfriendly... I wouldn't apply there.

You have a better shot there than Columbia and Rutgers. Definitely apply to Stony...you never know what could happen
By the way, i forgot to mention i have no research experience so do i even have a chance with Stony Brook? Do you know anyone who got an interview or acceptance that have similar stats and experience?

Just FYI, you can't "raise" your GPA after you apply. The GPA you apply with is what the dental schools see.
