If you figure this one out, distill it, put it in a bottle, and sell it because this is essentially the same question everyone else has - what is it gonna take for me to get into dental school? GPA? DAT? Shadow? Volunteer? AADSAS early/late? Interview? Secret handshake?

If I knew, I'd share.

That being said, the grad school work (in sciences) with that GPA and respectable DAT scores look to me like you should be in good shape. You may want to add schools in CA to the list. True, I've heard competition out there is fierce but at least you compete against other in-state people for in-state slots versus looking for charity out-of state slots at other locales in the country and compete against everyone on earth (literally).

based on your GPA and DAT score and since you have graduate course..you have a good chance to get in some of California schools. Also note that it all depends on the time you apply (earlier the better) and also if you have had any research and extracurricular that makes your application come out...from my own experience last year..there are lots and lots of student with high GPA and super DAT scores..for you try to be as unique as you can in your application and maybe you should add UNLV in to your list..best of luck.. :thumbup:
