Hey, everyone!

I just took the DAT this morning and wanted to know if a retake was necessary. I am rising junior with a 3.7 GPA and approximately a 3.5 sGPA. I have good extracurricular activities and solid Letter of Recommendations. My DAT scores are:

Bio: 18
GC: 20
OC:23
PAT:20
Reading:21
QR:18
AA:20
TS:20

I am just disappointed in my bio grade. I knew that i would have trouble in Qr since I never had time to finish. I just wanted to know if I should retake. Thanks!

These are good scores! I don't think a retake is necessary in your case. Great job!

@Pearl E. White Thanks! I'm just nervous about the BIO grade. Everything else I feel like is good though, except QR, but I've always had trouble finishing. I saw your scores and YOU DID AWESOME!! GOOD JOB!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Make sure the other portions of your application are strong and you should be good. And Thank You So Much!

:highfive:Congratulations!

I see no reason for a retake unless your top choice of schools requires something higher. A 20/20 with a 3.5 sGpa will get interviews at many schools.

Wishing you the best..Nancy
