Crack the DAT / Winter Kick-Off Meeting
If you plan to apply for schools this summer, or if you plan to take the DAT in the future, now is the best time to begin your preparation. In order to help get you steered in the right direction, we have put together a couple of meetings geared towards DAT prep. This , we will have representatives from each of the major DAT prep courses (Kaplan, Ace, & BYU) give a short presentation on their programs to help you decide which program, if any, you feel will best help prepare you for the DAT. Discounts will be given at this meeting. We will also have students from our club (that performed exceptionally well of the DAT) present their methods and what resources they found to be the most beneficial!
The following coursesaver.com), will be presenting to our club about DAT preparation. For those of you who were unable to attend our opening social (or had to leave early), Chad gave a presentation on a similar topic during that meeting and it was amazing! Hence why we are having him return for our Crack the DAT event this semester. This meeting will be less of a sales pitch, and more of a comprehensive presentation on some great ideas on how you should prepare for the DAT. For those of you who have done any sort of DAT prep know that Chad is your best friend. Being able to meet with him in-person is kind of like meeting a rockstar, but a rockstar that will help you get into dental school!, Chad McAllister, from Chad’s Videos (
There shouldn't be many excuses that keep you away from either of these two meetings, they are probably the most beneficial meetings of the year!!
