I was reading the MD's post and thought their topic on "giving back" was helpful. I was hoping some of the members who have been accepted somewhere would share their HONEST stats----so others could see where they stand or what type of marks they need to make the cut. Feel free to tell your story and stats. I'll start: 1)Undergrad school 2)GPA/Major 3)DAT/PAT 4)Extracurriculars 5)School accepted (list if you want) 6)Advice 1)Minn. State and U of Iowa 2)3.6 overall 3.5 Science/Biology and Psychology 3)19/18 4)Started a business---sold after 4 yrs. Numerous volunteer work. 5)U of Iowa dental school 6)Start your application early! It will allow adequate time to correct any mistakes you might find with your AADSAS application. Get familiar with the computerized format of the DAT--whether through Kaplan or some CD-ROM. Definitely reduces stress. Good luck to all. If you have specific questions post them and I (or some other members) will try to answer them!
