I think you'll be ok in the end. Just get through the cycle. Your DAT and non science background will be your saving grace IMO. Think of anything you possibly do that sets you different from the rest of the applicants and capitalize on it. If not then you'll be just like "everyone" else. This isn't the end of the world, but most people have something they don't realize unless they really think
