I took my first DAT on July and it wasn't good.
I planned to take it again on Sep BUT..ADA told me I have to wait at least 85 days to retake the exam!! that means i can take the exam at the end of october!!!! I know it's too late..is it worth it to take it again?
If I take it..how long does it take for dental schools to receive the scores?
HELP ME~

I'm on the same boat!
I thought it was 90 days!! is it 85?? I should check.
I I think it depends on what ur GPA is and how well you do on ur retake.
We should ace it, then we'll get interview invites.
I personally think it is worth it and therefore I'll be taking on end of October.
I think it takes about 2 weeks for the dental school to receive the scores, but I'm planning on faxing my "unofficial scores" right after the exam.
Good luck!
