    Hi, guys.
    1 just want-to ask you A couple of questions about DAT.
    I applied to dental schools last year, and I haven't got any acceptance letter. I think i failed to get into the dental program this year. I contacted a few schools admission office and asked why I was rejected. They said my GPA is low and recommended me to take some graduate course or get MS instead and then reapply. My GPA was overall 3.02 and 2.89 science. (Disaster was my freshman and sophormore year(GPA 2.6) and since junior I been in Dean's list. GPA was 3.7) I have 14 science repeated course which brings my GPA down dramatically. I have worked as a dental assistance and have about 5000 hrs dental experience. Some vounteer job participated.

    My DAT was
    PAT 24
    Bio 20
    GC 19
    OC 19
    QR 17
    RC 17
    TS 19
    AS 18
    I took last october.

    If I take it within 2 or 3 months and get around 21 or 23 something like high score, would I be able to have a good chance to get in for incoming cycle?
    Because I really want to save money. Ms or post-bac requires me to pay at least $30000 per year. Anyone can answer to resolve my issue? I have been frustrated because of my GPA which I screwed at first two years.
    Plz, gimme some advice.


    PS> When I took QR part, it was way too hard. I was thinking destroyer can't cover all of that. Is it still hard level?

    Thanks in advance!:laugh:
