    You applied to mostly State Schools. Where are you a resident....I'm guessing Texas?

    Applying to more Private Schools wouldn't be a bad idea, although it's most likely too late this cycle. It's very difficult to get accepted to State schools as a non-resident unless you have competitive stats. Michigan, Florida, Columbia, Washington all have high DAT averages. Boston is a little lower but still competitive. The ADEA publishes a book with the stats. There's also a link on SDN to the 04 cycle stats. I'm sure you can find it by doing a search.

    Ding ding ding...we have a winner. What's the point of telling us your DAT without your GPA. At least give us that much if you want some real answers. Plus, even with a GPA and a DAT score, no one can assess your application because there's more to it than grades.

    I agree. I know if I was part of an adcom, I wouldn't just focus on grades. I'd want students who are really easy going, not just brains. I think most people on SDN are pretty cool (although some people here stress out too much!) :D
