I say you have a shot, but it's kind of a tough call since a lot of well qualified applicants got rejected. Do you have any dental experience? GL! :)

The 20 on the DAT is really what will get you accepted. However, it depends on your undergrad degree and what ECs you have.

Work experience related to dentistry might be helpful. But I don't actually know. A lot of people work full and part time while in college. So that's not anything new . . .
