Hi everyone, I rarely post in this forum but I stop by frequently to check. I am in desperate need of help. I am so stressful right now. I am a non-traditional applicant, graduated in May 04, worked as a research assistant in NIH for a year, and now working as a full-time dental assistant. My undergraduate gpa is 3.82. I applied for 06 cycle and due to circumstances, I took my DAT late and had a low score and thus, got rejected from all 4 schools that I applied. I am determined to get in again and my question is how to improve my application besides the obvious thing is to retake the DAT again. Since I didn't have a low undergraduate gpa, do I need to enroll in a post-bac program? What to do in the extra year? Do you think working as a full-time dental assistant is good enough way to make use of my years? or do I need to do anything else? I know most people have been out of school have to make good use of their years to look good with adcom so I don't know what else to do in these years to strengthen my application. Please give me advice! Thank you very much.
