Ok so I went and spoke with the admissions at GHSU last week (I am applying this cycle to about 11 other schools as well) and the admissions counselor told me my application looked great except for my sGPA which is a 3.1 and my DAT scores, which my AA was a 16. I am retaking my DAT in June and plan on killing it (I hope anyway). She said I still had a shot as long as I get my DAT score up. I also have been looking at the ADEA Official Guide to Dental School book and all the schools I am applying to have accepted at least one person with a 2.8/2.9. I was talking to the dean of the biology department at my college today and he laughed and told me with a 3.1 sGPA no school would ever accept me, even if everything else is great and I have an awesome interview. Then he went on to say the statistics that I was telling him was "bull****" and again no one will get in with that low of a GPA. He also went on to say how other people have applied to dental school from my college and not gotten in with even better statistics. Needless to say I walked out of his office crying and I have been a mess all day. What do you guys think? Do I stand a chance if I pull my DAT scores up to a 20+ ?
