    Hey predent-I am in pretty much the same situation as u. I also will not be ready to take the DAT until late sep. My application is ready, and I have only 3 months of dental work exp. Everyone is saying I should have been prepared earlier especially since my GPA is only a 2.9 and since I need to be one of the early ones to apply to stand a chance. Well if you look down a this message list "should I still apply this year" that is my question, you will see what everyone said. I am now going to wait until next year to apply. Hopefully I will have a good DAT score(by studying for it without being rushed to send the score in if I were to do it this year). My app. will be turned in on the 1st day of JUNE and I will have more work exp. by then. All of this will surely increase my chances to be admitted to dental school. I know a year sounds long, but why waste your money and time applying now for a longshot chance when you can be in a way better position next year. P.s But keep studying for the DAT hard. By the way what is your GPA? Good luck with your decision
