Hello Everybody,
I was wondering whether anybody knows for how long a DAT score is valid. I think UCLA does not accept scores more than two years old. I am planning to take the DAT in May of 2007 and apply to dental school for 2009. Does this mean that my score will have expired by then, since the schools start in August?
I appreciate any help/suggestions.

would you be applying to enter school in 2009? If so, then I think you should be fine. If however you plan to apply in 2009 for 2010, then it might no longer be valid. best bet for this sort of question is to call the school.

check with schools, but the general rule most schools live by is the rules set down by the ADEA that DAT scores are valid for 3 years from date of DAT test.
