does anyone know of the schools that tend to emphasize the DAT more and may be more willing to forgive a lower GPA (due to one year). I have:

Cum: 3.1
Sci: 2.98
Major (BIO): 3.27

but i have made major improvements each year, since my horrific freshman year (2.4). I'm taking the DAT in May and i am trying to compile a list of schools to apply to. Thanks for the help!

it's important to do well on the DAT. Schools also look at upward trends in marks.

I noticed that a lot of schools state that they will look at recent performance, but I think only a few will seriously take it in to consideration. I also had a horrible first year. One school I would suggest for you to apply to would be UDM. I think they will seriously look at recent academic performance, also UISD. At less, these were the some of the schools that gave me a chance. Try also BU and NYU. If SDA definitely apply to LLU because that is all they care about.

You must do well on the DAT. 20+ overall, and no less then 18 on any section. If you need to take the whole summer to study and be a little late in applying, then do it to get those scores.

Columbia favors the DAT a lot *IF* you went to a good undergrad institution. Not uncommon to see < 3.0 w/ 23+ AA on the DAT.

Cheers,

yah I was just about the say Columbia..big DAT school....Temple also emphasizes the DAT a lot, but you dont need 20+ to get into Temple....but a 20+ is pretty much a guaranteed acceptence.
