    Biology : 18
    Chemistry: 19
    Science Total: 18
    Academic Average: 19

    it should tell you the percentile for each score on the sheet you're given.
    Those are realllllly solid scores..would probably translate to 20+ in each section if you wrote the american. But unfortunately, the canadian DAT is effed and puts 19 as the 90th percentile (for bio at least..)

    haha its all good guys. We got jipped.... but w/e a 90 percentile is 90 percentile. If you apply to Canada... you will still be top 10% so cheer up!

    only problem is that schools could care less about the percentiles

    it's all about the "standard" scores

    we are out of luck, but I'll have to see my scores first to believe that 90th percentile is a 19... cuz I still don't want to believe it!
