SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So, I was hoping to stick my SOP in tomorrow night. I THOUGHT it was decently done and polished, but the person at the writing center crossed out half of it. My DAT is schedules on the 12th, so exactly 3 weeks away. I am hoping to to put all my effort into it to finish up my studying starting tomorrow, but this SOP thing gets into the way. Now, I know that you cannot submit my application without my SOP, but I can submit it without having taken my DAT. So is the best idea right now to put every ounce of effort into my SOP, and just put as much polish as possible into it so I can still make the second batch of mailing and just push back the DAT date? If so, how late can i take the DAT without it causing my application to be knocked off the early consideration? Beginning of August? July 25th or so?
