I just want a non biased opinion about my chances for admission to a dental school. I got a 21 AA 22 PAT but my GPA is low (~3.29). I have a lot of extracurricular activities including volunteering, shadowing and research. I don't know whether I should do a one year masters first to remedy my lower GPA or maybe take a gap year and work in a lab? Just want some advice
Edit: I really just want to know if i can get into a school in general , I dont really care which one

Youre basically in the middle. Lower than the average GPA for dental school (your DAT should help) and really high stats for masters. If you have the $$$ you could apply to dental school early on (best chances) and then be prepared to apply to masters as a plan B if you dont hear anything
