I am new here and I have a question: I took the DAT three times. The last DAT: AA 20 Sci 20 and RC 16. My gpa is 3.2 sci gpa is 2.9 this is my third time applying with bunch of rejections and no interviews. I was going to start a master program in bio at Cal state in spring. I thought this would increase my chances of getting in but my advisor told me since I have a BS from a UC getting a master from a cal state won't impress the dental schools. I know that UCs require GRE and the deadline has already passed for fall 09. This means I have to waste one year! Plus it takes two years to finish the degree so I can't apply to dental school for another three yrs. What am I going to do now? Should I give up dentistry and do something else? Can someone please give me some advice?
