I know that your application gets sent out to the dental schools once your transcripts are verified, but at what point do the schools actually consider your application? I will be submitting my application in May, but I'll be taking the DAT in mid-august. Do schools give your application any consideration before the DAT scores arrive? I could take that DAT mid-July if it would make that much of a difference in when my app is considered complete. I assume schools never offer interviews without DAT scores, but perhaps they have a list of applicants they are going to give interviews once their DAT scores arrive, based on their other stats?
