I'm no moderator but "what are my chances" questions should be posted here http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/post-your-chance-me-threads-here.1203197

In any case, some schools have already sent out interview invites so it may be a bit too late. For USC and Western, you still have a chance.

Do you have any subsections below 3.0? like your science or Biology/Chemistry/Physics GPA? Many schools have a cutoff where they autoreject your app if you have and GPA subsection below 3.0

Did you go to like UC Berkeley, Cal Tech, or UCLA or something? You have an insane TS but your school's science department must've been super cutthroat....

OP, it is not too late to apply, it's only the beginning of August and a lot of schools haven't even sent out the initial round of invites yet. Your DAT scores are stellar and if you have good EC's, they should make up for that low GPA.

You consistently give people bad advice. OP, it is not too late to apply, it's only the beginning of August and a lot of schools haven't even sent out the initial round of invites yet. Your DAT scores are stellar and if you have good EC's, they should make up for that low GPA.
Thank you for calling me out on a public forum! Stay classy :cat:

Don't wage war against each other! XD. I'm guessing your a cali resident? You did an awesome job on the DAT! You probably went to a really hard school. I think you should apply to a few more schools though, 4 is a low number for just about anyone! I don't think it's too late. Deadlines are usually december or so for a lot of places.

Absolutely! I try to play it off cool, no offense taken :)

I'm surprised that my advice is misguided, but OP, it's up to you! Everyone has differing advice and options. Ultimately it is up to you to decide. You CAN still apply, but your chances would have been greater if you did it much earlier, back in June or even July. Not saying you have NO chance, but it is diminished regardless.

Personally, I don't think it's too late to apply. You're definitely leaning towards the late side, but if you have your PS and LORs ready to go, then just submit your app ASAP. I think you still got a shot, since your TS and AA is good!

Your DAT scores are pretty good, although your PAT is a bit on the low side. I would say don't consider LLU since I hear they reject you if it's not over 3.2. It's just one of their requirements.
