    Here's a funny story about a DAT experince. My friend, Mr. X, was taking the DAT in a 8 AM testing session. From what he had told me, I guess he had a pretty big breakfast in attempt to feed his neurons. In the middle of the test, during the PAT portion to be specific, he had to piss extremely bad!! He felt this urgency during the Organic Chemistry portion of it and tried to hold it in until the upcoming 15 minute break after the PAT. After trying to hold his full bladder for over 15 minutes, he had to go so bad that he couldn't hold it in any longer. So, he ran to the bathroom broke the seal and try to force the urine out as quick as he possibly can that his urethra burned. As urgent as every second was to him, his urination went on and on! By the time he got back to DAT, PAT portion, he had lost over 7 minutes on the timer! Due to his unexpected pissing break, the timer for the PAT portion expired before he could finish all the problems. As result, he scored semi-poor in that particular section. I can't stop laughing at the situation when he told me the story! A 7-minute piss break!! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Well, I took my DAT today for the second time! I did alright! But here's some stories about my DAT experience today. First, I'm sitting there doing my thing, answering questions and I realized that there were all these candies lying around on my cubical desk, on the computer, and by the keyboard! So, figuring that I should give my cerebral cortex some glucose to run on (since cerebral cortex is responsible for all the memories and thoughts, a DAT topic), I simply picked up a yellow wrapped candy near by. Unwrapped it, didn't really look at it or smell it, put it in my mouth and IT WAS A CINNAMON jaw breaker! I did see the candy was wrapped in yellow, thinking it was some fruity flavor, but no, it's cinnamon! I don't know about you guys, but I HATE cinnamon!!

    At any rate, I spitted it out and continued with my DAT.....next story....it actually freaked me out! Everytime I go to click on "NEXT" for the next questionaire after I answered a question, it would take like 4-5 seconds to switch the screen! I mean the timer will pause, but the screen just goes blank for 5 seconds!!!! The first time I was like, [email protected]#*, the computer is freezing up on me! This would happen continuously through out the whole entire exam!!!

    In addition to that, the CPU fan inside the computer would go off and make this annoying noise that you think the computer might explode or something! It was pretty nerve wrecking and interesting!! Between the sick cinnamon taste in my mouth, the CPU fan going crazy, and the 5-second "screen freeze" for every 3 questions, I was pleased that I've made it through with decent performance!

    My new scores:

    Academic: 20
    Overall Sci: 20
    PAT: 23

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO glad that I'm done with DATs!! :cool:

    I'm bring this thread back for those of you are taking the DAT in the future months! I still get a great laugh out of my friend, Mr. X, who took the 7-minutes piss break. He just got accepted to UNLV for next fall! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    It was a hot summer day. I was halfway thru the dat when the computer starts bugging out on me. I said to the beautiful 20 yr old test administrator, "Hey! I think there's something wrong with my hard drive." She said, "Really. Let me see...does this help?" Then, she slowly starts peeling off her...wait. That's my letter to Penthouse. How'd that thing get in here? Where were we? Oh yeah, dat...nothing exciting happened.
