    Hello Guys!
    I need your expert advice! I took my DAT about 3 months ago and applied to 8 dental schools this cycle. My RC is very low it's 17. I applied in early August and got the secondaries from schools but no interviews yet! Do you think its due to my low RC score and should I retake my DAT to apply next cycle again? Please let me know what y'all think. I will really appreciate your feedback :)
    Thanks!

    Your stats looks good, If you don't end up getting in this cycle then its definitely worth retaking if you can bring RC up a few points.

    I used datbootcamp and DAT Destroyer along with AP Cliff and Chad videos and quizzes. If you have not taken it then Best of luck I hope you kill it :)

    I think you are good. You got 20+ on DAT and your sGPA is very good. I think you should be fine!
