  1. Academic Administration
Did you attend any academic enrichment programs before applying? Are you connected to SNDA chapter officers at the schools or local/state NDA members? In the absence of a DAT score, your geographically-based and affinity-based list is fine though I would want to know more about your personal journey to be sure.
