congrats!!!!!!!!!! i know how much this must mean to you!!
my breakdown was different, but that's exactly what i got on my DAT.
so where have you applied, and where do you want to go?
(not to burst your bubble, and this probly won't happen to you, but i did still get turned down by three or four schools - including harvard, who sent me a reject the first day they were allowed to by AADS - bastids...)

heheh.. what was your major and your GPA??
i am going to apply to UCSF, UCLA, harvard, NYU, UOP, loma linda, USC, and UNLV
but i care not where i go... becuase i'm going to take over my parents business hehehehe...
i'm a triple major with a specialization in biochem with a 3.08 cumm GPA...
so.. i think i have a BETTER shot with this good score

harvard was just upset about the ghetto high school i went to... what kind of a grad school asks what high school you went to?!?! nobody, not even the people with the perfect act, missed-one-question on the sat, got into harvard, undergrad or grad.
the rest were legitimate rejections... didn't apply to unlv, but got accepted everywhere else on your list. my gpa was 3.6 in the super-duper pimped out honors curriculum, and i had other honors falling out of my butt, major community involvement, blah, blah, blah, etc... but, i have a BA in forestry, which was actually seen as desirable by a lot of the schools - they wanted "unique," not pre-med drones. but other schools (all three east coast) decided that since i didn't express any interest in being a dentist until i was a senior, i wasn't what they wanted, which is fair enough.
if your parents are in the bidness, they eat that shit up - you are soooooo in. congrats again, and just remember, when you're in the lab at three am, waxing your crown AGAIN because an equipment failure baked your beautycast beyond recognition.... you will be a very rich man someday.
unless you are smart enough to go to a school that doesn't require you to do your own labwork. if you do no other research before you pick a school, find out how much labwork they want you to do. i figger, its good to learn how to wax, builds character and all that, but do you really need to be doing it for every friggin crown prep you do for four years?!?! most schools still say yes, even tho you will never do it in your own practice...
