    I have taken my DAT 2 times... I improved quite a bit, but still want to bring up orgo and QR. I am starting to study now while things are still fresh. If I take the DAT circa the middle/end of September without schools knowing I am planning to retake it... you think they will rereview my application if they werent satisfied the first time around?

    First of all, I would call the schools I applied to and talk to them about it. Make sure they know you plan to retake it. I have a good friend who is in the same situation as you, and that is what she did. And they were super nice to her...even made a little note on her application to look for the new scores when she retakes it. Most schools will review your application again --- as long as you inform them of the situation. Good luck to you!!

    I would be careful though. Some schools will not review your information till everything is up to date. I would give them time to look it over before I contact them. So you know someone looked it over first time around. If they want an interview with the lower scores, great; let them know then that you are plannign to retake the dat. or if you don't hear anything then let the schools know so they will look at it again.
