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?

Great, if I don't totally bomb the DAT looks like I'll have it made.

Does anyone have the in-state stats for the previous application cycle (2010)? I don't have the ADEA Dental School Guide yet. I'd really appreciate someone's help.

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!

Actually Louisville enrolls 76 out-of-state residents. I just had the interview today.

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.

Well your cousin must have something special for sure. They don't just pull scum off the street. Im sure they will give you a shot.
