    I just got done with my DAT (20AA/20TS/23PAT/nothing below 17) and my GPA is on the bad side (3.41 oGPA/3.30 sGPA). I feel like it's a little bit too late for me to apply at this point. The only thing I got going is my GPA trend. I went from around 2.85 overall GPA at the end of my sophomore year and averaged around 4.02 GPA according to AADSAS for my past 5 academic quarters (some A+ in upper div bio classes like molecular bio/immuno). My overall stats aren't that appealing but I went batshi* during the last 2 years of college. Will they even look at that improvement and should I apply at all this cycle? I went to UC San Diego if that helps. Thank you so much in advance,

    and please ignore the keyboardwarrior name - I'm very friendly :D

    if you have LORs and personal statement ready, I think you still stand a good chance.
    Pretty much identical GPA as I, but you've been showing improvements, so I think they will look favorably upon that.

    DAT seems pretty solid too!
