    I was just wondering how would it look if you've applied like 3 times, but have gotten rejected all three times due to circumstances....haven't been able to take the DAT on time due to family commitments, job etc....gpa is average...

    I don't think it will affect you negatively, but positively: it shows your determination.

    Never give up, never surrender!

    If you keep getting rejected and don't change anything about your application . . . then that's probably a negative.

    But if you improve your application each time, then at least you're trying and that's probably a positive in the re-application process.
