I think you have an excellent chance in all 3 texas schools!!! try to pull ur gpa up to around a 3.3 and do above a 19 on the DAT as those are the average of matriculants in tx. if u continue to shadow at UTH, try meeting some faculty members. they might be on the ad comm!! u then will be able to get some inside info from them or even a rec letter. good luck to u!

Question:

Are you banking on your hockey pals to bring you all your business?


If you are determined as you post indicated and do not let up I think you will get in. Press on!

Good Luck

Matt

speakin of hockey pals. I know when I become a dentist , I going to theme my office in a hockey theme. Have pics of hockey players smiling with no teeth. Scare the little kids into brushing your teeth. If you don't brush this is what your teeth are going to look like:clap:

Side note,

When the Wings won the cup a couple years ago there was a painting based on a picture of Stevie Y. (Yzerman?) He was smiling with a huge grin with a full set of teeth. Later I saw the actual photgraph and he was missing his front teeth. The artist embellished it just a bit.
