Hello... I am a California resident, so I really want to get into either UCLA or UCSF. The problems is, both of these schools are hard to get in!!! I just took my DAT the end of last month, my science avg is 22, RCT 19, QRT 20, but my PAT is only 17!!! I read the official guide to Dental schools, and it says that both schools treat PAT score pretty importantly, and am I screwed? should I retake it again? I felt like Topscore and Kaplan didn't give me adequate practice because those are easy, and I've been getting 22s....but this 17 in the real test was shocking... Here is my other stats, I volunteer for a free community clinic for 150 hours, ~40 are dental related, I have shadowed a dentist for about 1/2 year for about 80 hour and volunteered in another dental practice for about 60 hours. I did research in Neurology for one year, did a poster. My science GPA is about 3.65, overall 3.63. I HAVEN'T subimit my application yet!! I will within this two weeks though. Thank you!!!
