    Hello all. If I have long term experience (2 years) working in a dental office, a lot of shadowing hours, some research hours, a tooonnn of volunteer hours, should I be trying to find something else noteworthy to put on my app? I speak Spanish and ASL, and I thought that might work as something that will set me apart from other applicants. But I'm a little worried it won't stand out enough or is not as impressive as I thought. Have I covered all the bases or should I be finding other specific things to do that will make me stand out?

    I should also mention that my GPA is solid (3.8) as of right now, but it's too early for me to take the DAT, as I am applying my senior year rather than junior year.

    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

    You said you speak Spanish. Do you happen to be a minority? That's pretty special.
