    What if you do poorly?

    What if you do well?

    if you're serious about this thing, you'll submit in May and make sure failure is not an option when taking the DAT. Seriously, study as hard as you can, until you think you can't possibly study any more, and then study some more. If you have truly done your best in preparing for the DAT, you should do well, unless this whole thing just isn't in the cards for you.

    Apply early because you can always retake the DAT (which you shouldn't plan on) and contact the schools if you have to.

    Apply early and retake the DAT in the meantime.
    Just make sure you nail it this time around.

    i agree with the others. apply early.

    i dont see why you would wait until june? i also dont get the wasting 1 grand. if you do poorly does that mean you wont submit in june?
