    Are these scores good enough to get into dental school? I'm really nervous I apples to 33 schools to be safe. I submit my applications the last week of July. My gpa is a 3.4. I'm nervous about the 16 in pat, when I took the exam I didn't realiZe the time goes by so fast and was only able to answer 60 out of the 90 questions. Please help me! Are these good enough to get at least one interview?!

    33 schools? Holy ****. Did you do any research on school selection?


    You might score an interview at a private school. I would retake dat.

    33 schools... Wow ... But I guess if you really want to start school next fall and don't care where you go, and can spend money like that, why not. Personally, I would retake the DAT. You didn't realize time goes so fast? Have you taken any practice tests?

    Well, as long as you are above the cutoff score then there is always a chance, right? Especially if applying to that many schools. Did you take any practice DAT?

    You should have came to SDN before you threw money at 33 schools. I just think with those stats and applying the last week of july is not as helpful as applying with similar stats and being first batch. Hey you might get in, but its a bit too late to ask questions now after you already applied to 33 SCHOOLS.

    Can you imagine listing 33 schools in supplemental applications where they ask what other schools you applied to?
