    Hi guys,
    I'm new to this forum and currently applying this year. My Overall GPA is 3.66 and my science GPA is 3.67.
    My DAT are AA 21 TS 21 RC 18 PAT 26. However, I did not meet the minimum science hours and some courses, but I definitely finish them before going to dental school together with my Bachelor of Science. I have been a dental assisstant for a year now. Do you think I can get an interview this year? My application already transmitted to the school on 08/03/15.

    As far as UT Austin goes, ochem lab can be taken in a single semester or broken into two semesters. I think the latter option is the one he or she is talking about.

    The three Texas schools require 8 semester hours of organic chemistry. This typically means Organic I and II, which are typically 4 hours each inclusive of a 1 hour lab each...
