    For those of you in dental school...how well did your PAT score correlate with your manual/operative skills in dentistry? I mean, if you have a low PAT score are you going to spend hours and hours carving wax teeth your first year (or whatever you have to do)?
    Thanks,

    Do not fret. Your kind and understanding professors will show unconditonal love and treat each of you as an individual who is to be nurtured regardless of your state of preparedness . You will each start at the level that is most comfortable for you based upon your PAT score. For example if your PAT is 29 or above, your first task will be to carve a full scale duplicate of Michelangelo's "David" in wax and then produce a bronze casting of the wax model. If your PAT is below 5, you will first be required to chop a block of parrafin in half via a minature guillotine. Over time, the entering novices catch up with the entering master craftsmen and everyone completes the assigned tasks on time (except for the statue of "David" which no one ever masters).
