I wanted to send a little encouragement for those without the 20 DAT's and below 3.3 averages. I follow under both of those categories. I was very depressed after retaking my DAT's a month again and lets say i got below an 18. Well i have still mangaged to receive two interviews so far. Case Western and Boston. At least now i will have the opportunity to prove my passion towards dentistry and sell myself to the adcoms. I know its not an acceptance, but at least its a foot in the door. My advice which has already been given. Apply early! My application was sent out in the first batch.
