So I took the DAT on 3/19 and made 18AA and 19 PA and have decided to retake. I know there is a 90 day waiting period before you can retake, but when I went to sign up for a test date I was able to register for June 5. I received my DAT eligibility letter and everything from ADA, is this a mistake? Just wondering if anyone knew the answer.... everyone I have ever spoke to from ADA is rude so I'm trying to avoid calling them unless I absolutely have to. :p

Wow... that's really interesting. Part of me thinks that if it is their mistake, they'll accept whatever score you get since you "don't know any better". The other part of me thinks that they might invalidate your score when they realize the two dates are within 90 days of each other...

Probably worth a call to the big bad ADA

Or you can wait it out and if you don't get a good score just say it was invalid and take it 2 weeks later! :laugh:
