It wasn't until my current semester (Junior year undergrad. spring 2010) that I decided that I definately want to go to dental school. I am doing research with my organic chem. professor this summer, working/observing in a dental office this summer, and taking my DATs in August. Everyone is saying to apply early. What it early? June, July, August Sept.? Also, can I apply anytime or do I need to have my DAT scores to apply (like can I apply with the grades I have in June, and then after I take my DAT in August, I would send those scores in...or should I take the DAT in August and then send my application after I get the DAT resutls) Any feedback helps. Thanks!
