    Tell us what your stats (GPA) are and we will tell you what schools you will be competitive for.

    Again, the more you tell us, the more advice you get.

    Post the stats and we can give you more info. Also, of you are into serving underserved populations and welfare patients, then Arizona is defiently the place for you. I would check out their web site at http://www.asdoh.atsu.edu/. Take a look at their mission statment.

    i don't know why people are so scared of mentioning their stats. i mean you don't have to tell all of your stats but if you are gonna ask for this kinda oinion then give poeple something to work with.

    ie, GPA, AA/PAT/Sci dental exp yes no.

    Hey Morph, I encourage you to get some dental experience as this will increase your competitiveness on your applicant profile as well as a topic of discussion in your interviews.

    Your GPA is good! You should have a fair chance in getting into most schools if your DAT are good (20+ on most sections)

    Good Luck!:thumbup:

    I'd say, based on a 3.3 GPA, that you are still competitive in almost any dental school in the US (don't know much about Canadian schools). It depends on your DAT score. So keep working on that DAT score.
