I just took my DAT and scored the following:
PAT 18
QR 17
RC 18
Bio 18
GC 18
OC 21
TS 19
AA 18

oGPA: 3.3
sGPA: 3.2
BCP: 3.0
-Also worth noting that I have a strong upward trend in my grades.

I also have >400 hours as a dental assistant

I already sent in my application a few weeks ago, but haven't completed any supplemental apps yet. My question being whether I should eliminate any schools from my list? I don't want to spend the extra money on some supplemental apps and spend time writing more essays if I won't get an interview anyways.

Here are the schools I applied to. I am a WI resident.

Marquette
Midwestern (Illinois and Arizona)
USC
Western
Minnesota
UNLV
UIC
Colorado

I wouldn't drop any of those schools. If things don't go your way, just study super hard for the dat and retake it next year, and if you get a pretty high score I bet that would land you interviews, and acceptances.

If anything I would add schools. Colorado isn't really OOS friendly for people outside of the western alliance so if you want to drop one, you could drop that one. Your stats are pretty low, the dental assisting might help. What do you have for volunteer hours? If you are from small town WI, maybe add MOSDOH if you have good volunteer hours.
