    Hi all! I took my Kaplan online diagnostic test, and had TS 12 and AA 12 :(

    I know it's HORRID!!! it's probably the WORST score you'll ever see on SDN. I'm a non-science major. I took general chem and organic chem 2 and 1 year ago, and did the basic biology this year.

    I actually have already apply for the test and need to pick a day now. I'm so indecisive because I don't know when I'll be ready for it and don't wanna pick a date and end up reschedule for it....

    I start studying a little bit from Kaplan online everyday right now. When I get out of school in June, I'll study like crazy. I'm planning to take my test in early-mid August. I have 6-7 weeks (1.5 month) to study 7-8 hours 5 days/week.

    Do you think I can reach a good score by early-mid August????

    I know it's a very extreme case due my extremely bad score.....so I really need to advice on that! :scared: THANK YOU!

    With hard work and dedication, everything is possible, just don't give up hope, without hope there is nothing in life. 1.5 months should be more than enough time.

    I just wanted to let you know that do not worry to much about the kaplan diagnostic cause they make it really hard to scare, which it seems they did and then show you that you are improving. i took kaplan and there were people in my class that got 10. what you got doesn't matter how you improve it matters.
     
  4. Work hard and you'll be fine. I took a Kaplan Diagnostic and then the real test 2 months later:

    Diagnostic:
    15TS / 15AA / 15 PAT

    Actual DAT:
    21TS / 21AA / 20 PAT


    Good luck. Study hard and you'll do fine. You have plenty of time

    realistically, in my opinion, it took me the entire summer (june to early august) to go from 18 AA to 24AA. unless ure applying this year, take it as late as you can. tahts my opinion

    Same here. I think 2 months is a good time to go by.
