    I interviewed at MWU in Sept. and UCSF and UW in late Nov. I was wondering if anyone got in to these schools with similar stats to mine. MWU said I was an alternate so does anyone know if I have a good chance of getting in? No word from UW and UCSF. I am a Washington state resident. Thanks!

    My Cumulative is a 3.27
    BCP:3.11 :( (Cellular and Molecular Major so had to take Biochem ect.)
    Science: 3.01 (Math really hurt this):(

    My DAT scores are as follows:
    Academic Average: 21 93.0 Percentile

    Perceptual Ability: 20 85.4 Percentile

    Quantitative Reasoning: 14 25.8 Percentile :( (Always been bad at Math)

    Reading Comprehension: 30 100.0 Percentile (Don't know how that happened)

    Biology: 20 86.9 Percentile

    General Chemistry: 23 95.0 Percentile

    Organic Chemistry: 19 73.1 Percentile

    Total Science: 21 92.4 Percentile

    I also have over 3000 hours of hands on experience as a Dental Assistant in addition to hundreds of hours of volunteer work and shadowing. I also planned and financed my own oral health service trip to Vietnam. This is my 4th time applying. Yep. Thanks again for any input!

    I apologize for changing the subject real quick, but how did you manage a 30 on RC? How did you study for it?

    Dehaandster, your stats aren't bad for some dentals schools, but all of my friends with similar numbers didn't have any luck at the schools you mentioned. I think your DAT score is great, so if you have any way of bringing up that GPA it would help. Some schools are less worried about GPA, in fact I think your GPA falls right into the average accepted range at BU.
