    Hi everyone

    I'm just wondering, what is the ideal time to send in my dental school application if I will be a junior startin next semester. I've heard that it takes approximately a month before the dental school actually recieves the application. So would it be ideal for me to send in my application a month prior to each dental school's first date of acceptance of applications so that they will recieve it ASAP, and my application will be one of the first that they review.

    Also, when is the ideal time to take my DAT's??

    Thanks for your inputs

    send it in your senior year as soon as it becomes available.

    So you don't send in the application till the start of your senior year????.....I thought people start sending them in during the summer after junior year.

    Freddy,

    That is correct. The application will become available online during the summer, and then you send it in. If it is after your junior year, then you are a senior, as markymark stated. You are both correct.

    Thanks for all your help, but when is the ideal time to take the DAT? Would it be ideal to send in my application without a DAT score and then take the DAT afterwards?

    take the DAT after you've had both Organics, Physiology, and preferable embryology. Evolution topics are included, along with taxonomy, etc. but they are basic questions. Anyway, that's my advice.
