    I plan to take DAT at the end of March 2010 and apply at the end of May. I read on the ADEA Official Guide to Dental School and it seem that they have the latest DAT for consideration of application is December of the previous year.

    For example, taken from the 2009 version of the guide.

    DAT: 2008 Entering Class
    Latest DAT for consideration: 12/01/2008

    Can someone clarify? thanks :confused: I hope I don't have to wait a year to use my March 2010 score

      Let me see if I understand. You want to take the DAT in MARCH (2010), apply to Dental school in MARCH (2010)...for the 2010 cycle?, i.e THIS fall semester?
      It's highly unlikely that you will get any responses. That's very very late! Most schools have deadlines in January. Besides, the new cycle, for 2011, opens on June 1st. You can take the DAT in March and apply once the new cycle opens (the 2011 cycle). You will have a better chance of getting your application reviewed :)
