    what's your GPA?
    I heard that for SOME schools 17 is kind of a cutoff line in terms of scores for individual sections...but I'm not sure where and how stiff that rule is.
    At least your sciences and PA are pretty solid.

    RC questions weren't as direct as DAT Achiever's.
    since im a slow reader, i looked for the keywords and got 18-20s when i practiced. but it didn't work out well for the real DAT.

    im so depressed..............

    don't dental schools look at TS mostly?

    A lot of people on this forum have claimed that RC is one of the most important sections (behind either GC or OC) since it gauges your ability to read quickly and abstract necessary/important info - which is a skill that will be essential in dental school...

    That's just what I've heard though.
