i have just taken the dat and scored a poorly in the math section and pat (both 18's). I have a 22 academic average and a 3.59. What are my chances of getting admitted into UNC-CH school of dentistry? I attend UNC-CH as an undergraduate and I do a ton of research here.

your gpa and dat are all good. 18's in any section is slightly above average, which is about 17. With your high GPA you have a very good chance of getting in UNC, and just about any school you want, within reason

I'd say you more than likely will get in. I also attended UNC for my undergrad and like you got a 22 on my DAT and was accepted to next years d' school class. In one of my interviews, the dr. broke it down to me on how UNC looks at student. I was told that everyone receives a certain numeric score. 30% is your science GPA, 30% is your DAT science I believe (which in your case may help you even more) and 40% is the interview scores. You'll definitely get an interview w/ your DAT and GPA so I'd say the rest is up to you!

Good luck :p

i can get only two letters of reccomendation, one from my physics professor and one from my biology professor whom I am currently doing research for. Should I seek more, or is 2 generally enough?
