Retake. LSU prefers all sections over 18. Found that on their website when considering applying there as well.

I have a friend who had sections below 18 and got an interview at LSU. His AA was 20. That means that they must not stick to the no sections below 18. Most schools completely over look math. I just got an interview to Memphis UT with below scores. there is hope! p.s. with you being a mother i'm sure that will make you stand out in your Personal S.

3.8 science GPA 3.7 overall. (also if you have to retake next cycle if you didn't use Chads videos for chemistry you should next time) I'm 31 so i think that played a roll. Memphis said they prefer students our age because we are more mature and are usually good students/dentist. (during my interview)

Here it is straight from LSU's website

Dental Admission Test
A competitive score on the DAT is considered to be an academic average of 21 with no score lower than 19. The mean academic average for entering freshmen is 21.
