I just took DAT but my score is.. TS 18, RC 16, QR 20, PAT 21... with gpa of 3.59
I already applied in June, but do you guys think any school would invite me for interview with TS 18 and RC 16..? I can't even retake for this cycle cause I know it would be too late.
Which schools do you guys think I can get in honestly...

Then I'd say DCG, MUSC, LECOM, NYU, Case, all the expensive private schools and your in state school. You're fighting an uphill battle but you might land a couple interviews.

Not every school has a high DAT average, so there are some schools out there who would interview you. Which schools did you apply to this cycle? It will be easier to evaluate your chances when comparing them to the known averages of the places you applied.

The RC section tends to be a pretty important one, and the 16 there will likely hurt your chances, but it isn't impossible. I would prepare for a retake if you don't receive any interviews within a certain window of time.

Average DAT scores (AA/TS) of these schools:

NOVA 20.3/20.7
LECOM 19.2/19.1
Maryland 20.8/20.8
Detroit 20.9/20.7
Rutgers 21.3/21.4
UNLV 20.6/20.4
NYU 21.1/21.3
Temple 20.7/20.6
Stony Brook 21.5/22
Meharry 17.9/17.8
UTenn 20.5/20.2
Case 20.1/19.9
Touro 20.2/20.0
DCG 19.8/19.4
Pitt 21.3/21

I bolded the schools where you are within 2 points of their matriculated average, which should reflect the ones you have a better chance at. Your GPA is also average or above for those three schools.

Schools in red have a matriculated DAT average 3+ higher than yours, and chances would be lower.

Nah, most likely DCG if you get one. Meharry has a huge preference for URM. I know 2 people that got in with sub 3.5 gpas and 16AA but one was Hispanic and the other African American.
