    if you're hoping to get into canada, i think a 14 might hold you back. you have a reallllllly solid GPA, and that's definitely going to be your strong point, and will get you interviews at some canadian schools. I dont know about the states since they actually care about the DAT. Although your percentiles are very impressive, your standard scores are what really matter. I think the february DAT is going to be a lot easier since the scores for the november DAT are really low..i think if you can do that well on the november DAT..you might want to re-write it in February
