This is my first post but i've been following this awesome forum quite some time now. I need some advice. I made a huge mistake by not applying earlier in the process. I held back because I didn't want to waste $$$$ if I did poorly on the DAT's (My GPA sucks 3.0/3.0). Well, I took them last week on the 9th and this was the outcome: Acad Avg: 22 Pat: 24 It was such a relief to score higher than I expected. I graduated in june from UCSB with 3.0/3.0, no research, +200 hrs dental experience. My application should be done by the end of the weekend if I still want to send it. Schools i'm looking into: UOP, UCLA, UCSF, USC, LLU, Arizona, UNLV, Nova, Boston, Tufts, Michigan, Creighton, NYU, Case Western, Temple, UPenn, Marquette. Any of these look like bad choices? I need to narrow in down. Do I still have a shot this late in the game? Thanks for hearing me out.
