I keep hearing this whole "Apply early!" talk all over the place and I wanted to understand the reasoning behind it. why are we told to get in the app's before july and DAT before aug? Is it that 90% of the dental seats are gone by then or what? Furthermore, most school deadlines can go until January and beyond! Why not take those months to perfect your DAT score and end up getting something schools won't say no too. Personally, I have a 3.8 SGPA/3.8GPA and I think if I take the DAT in October, giving me like 4 months to ace the DAT and get 20's, I could get offers...right? your thoughts are appreciated!
