    Here's me - BA in Sociology 1998 from UCSB - took most of my pre-reqs this past year at community colleges and CSUN. Overall GPA is about a 3.6 Science GPA is about 3.75. I will be taking the last semester of OChem over the summer and both semesters of Physics in the Fall. I'm 31 and would like to start D-school asap. I'm in California.

    Nice GPA. What's your DAT score? How does your EC look like?

    If your DAT score is around 18, you may want to keep this list.

    If your DAT score is 20+, you can cut it into a half or even a third.

    Have you taken any practice exam? Then, you should have some kind of idea. If you can get 20+ for sure, you'd better save money by applying fewer schools since it could cost you $150 per school just for applying.
