Before I finally submit my application, I would like some opinions on my chances of acceptance for the 2007 cycle. I'm going to list everything I've done throughout college. First of all, I did not do well on the DAT scoring only a 17 AA and 16 PAT so I will be retaking it the first weekend in October. My overall gpa is a 3.87 and science gpa is 3.75. I have between 40-50 hours of straight observing. I am spending my summer volunteering in a dental clinic - cleaning up after the dentist is finished, preparing for the next patient, and sterilizing instruments. Beginning in late August, I will be trained by another dental clinic at school to assist. My uncle and cousin both attended the same dental school to which I will be applying (a certain school in the Philadelphia area and my number one choice). Lots of honor societies -Phi Beta Kappa, Alpha Epsilon Delta, Mortar Board (social chair), Phi Kappa Phi. Pre-Dent Society. Chem group leader. Tutor. Red Cross club -active member. Nittany Knitters. One year of research. I am applying to BU, Tufts, Case, Howard, NYU, Buffalo, Maryland, UMDNJ, PITT, VCU, Penn, TEMPLE. So, let me have it. What are my chances?!
