Hey guys,

So I have a BCP gpa of 3.18 and an overall of 3.33. I thought this was kind of on the low side, so when I submitted my app in the beginning of August I only applied to schools I thought I would have an okay chance at since I didn't know my DAT scores yet. but I took my test on Friday and got 21b/29gc/28oc/23/pat/23reading/21qr/24ts/24aa :)D) and now I'm thinking I should add some more schools to my designated list? what do you guys think? Where do I have a shot at with my GPA?

thanks for the advice!

Great work dude. I honestly think you could roll the dice at most schools with those stats. Assuming you're an American, and have acceptable EC's.

Nicely done, OP! Have you got a 4-year degree too? It would help a lot =)

Nice job on your DAT!! In my opinion, your scores totally help to offset your GPA; as long as your GPA shows an upward trend, I think you have a great shot at a lot of schools! The only catch is that it is getting to the point where it could be considered late to submit by certain standards. If you don't mind me asking, what schools did you apply to already? That way we can make better suggestions on where you should apply...
