Okay, I'm not sure if there are just more douchebags where I am, but do any of you ever get condescending questions about pre-dentistry and the DAT, especially from pre-med students? And how do you deal with it? My DAT is in a few days and I've been studying really hard for it. However, it's really annoying when I get questions about what the difference between the DAT and MCAT is, and then I hear, "So like...is it hard?" just because it's shorter than the MCAT, has less material, has a PAT section (which I personally don't think is a cake walk at all, but it sounds "easy" to the regular person), is less of a "crowded" field I guess than pre-med. Like I've gotten several questions asking if it's hard. It just pisses me off when people undermine the hard work and stress we pre-dental students have to go through- it's the same as any pre-med student. And of course, when people don't recognize dentistry as a medical field, or make annoying stereotypes, the list goes on. Obviously anything you do will come with things people can pick on, but can someone reply with a good way they either ignore or address this stuff?
