Assuming your DAT goes well, you sound like a strong candidate to me. Just be smart on which schools you apply to.I will be taking the DAT June 18 and I have everything else ready to go! I have strong letters of recommendation and what I feel is a strong personal statement. The reason my GPA is low is due to not being focused my freshman year while playing baseball.. I had low grades in classes like English, history, and other generals. I haven't calculated my science GPA yet but I would assume it is above a 3.5.. My past 4 semesters I have not had a GPA lower than a 3.6 with A's in biology, physiology, anatomy, gen chem and a B+ in Ochem.. I have really matured a lot and stepped it up but my freshman year is killing my GPA
Apply early, do well on the DAT 20+ and you should be fine. Dental schools appreciate upward trends so freshman year may be holding your gpa back but if you talk ab maturity in your personal statement, and the rest of your grades show an increasing trend...it should not hold you back!I am getting ready to apply in the upcoming cycle and I have a GPA of 3.35 but I also have over 1000 hours in a dental office. What are my chances?
