    You need to retry entering the sessions. There is a limit on the number of sessions one can enter, however I think that number is in the thirties. If the problem continues, you need to contact AADSAS. Maybe its a temporary computer glitch that they need to be notified about.

    I had 28 sessions entered without problem. It may be a bug. either wait or email AADSAS. Rhea is right you can enter up to 30 sessions.

    Good luck, think positive. When all else fails, keep your head up and think positive. We all are rooting for you.

    Goodluck Snaagirl! Have you decided if you are going to take the DATS over again in 90 days?

    I am retaking my DATS in the middle of november so schools won't recieve it until mid Dec.
    Anyway, I say go ahead and take them over. January is not too late for them to be getting scores. **Remember--you can send schools an unofficial copy of your new DATS score the same day you take the test, so they don't have to wait around until January. It's better to be overprepared than not. however, if you are in school fulltime and cannot study for the DATS than that is a different story because you may end up doing worse the second time around. Do you have any time before december to study?

    I'm sorry to hear about your AADSAS situation -- that stinks.

    In regards to your retaking the DAT, you have a valid concern. Mid-Jan is late for schools to be receiving scores. Schools will have sent out a first batch of acceptances (early Dec.), received notices about whether students are going to attend there (the date is Jan 15.), and then based on those notices they *may* have sent out a second batch of acceptances by the time they get your scores. I think you'd be pressing your luck for some schools.

    I would retake the DAT if you are confident that you can bring your scores up significantly, however be aware that many schools will already have lots of acceptances sent out by then.
