    does it look bad to apply to a lot of schools? i am thinking abt applying to abt 15 schools because my DAT is average (not as great as most of SDNers). what is the max i should apply to? and will schools know where/how many places i apply?

    thanks!!

    I am applying to 16 total.. if it looks bad.. well I applied to 2 last year, and didn't get in.... so I figure applying to 16 gives me a better chance?

    It was 200 for one school and something like 60 after that up to a certain number of schools. AADSAS will always have bad service until there are options to choose who you go through for dental applications.

    16 schools 2 yrs ago cost me 1300 bucks. Dat was like 250.

    I say apply to as many schools as you can. Why not double your chances for a couple hundred bucks more?
