  1. Pre-Dental
I'm currently a sophmore pre-dental student with a 3.20 gpa. I have had significant personal hardships including a close family member being diagnosed with a severe mental illness my freshman year and myself getting diagnosed with ADHD at the beginning of this semester. I am in a wellness club and pre-dental club and I currently don't hold any leadership positions but I plan to next year. My two dream dental schools are University of Illinois at Chicago (I am in-state) and LECOM. Although I think I can make a 3.4-3.5 gpa by the end of senior year but I was wondering what minimum DAT score I should aim for in order to make up for a less than ideal gpa to be a competitive applicant to UIC and LECOM.
Thank you!

Aim for as high as you can in every class, because naturally you’ll get some hard classes where you won’t get an A. But it’s good you recognize 3.4+ is competitive, so this should be your minimum gpa goal
