Wow looks like I will have a great chance as long as I do decent on the DAT. I have a 3.94 BCP, 3.86 other science, 3.76 total. I can't believe only 170 applied in-state. Would you mind looking up UK for me?

That's outrageous, so out of the people who interview ~240, only 40 seats are available. that's a 6:1, assuming UL gets a 50% yield from their offers, that means 80 acceptances are given out.
240:80 is still a 3:1 about a 33% chance of getting in... SCARY!

I have a cousin enrolled at Louisville as a first year. He got in with a 17 DAT and 3.9ish GPA. Blows my mind that such a low score could be appealing to a school but they do that regularly. One of his friends has an interview and is in the same statistical situation. I guess I think is lame because it's not advantageous to me.
