    With a 3.78, retake. I am sure you can pull off a 20 or even 23+....

    Hello, correct me if I am wrong guys, but having such a high GPA and then those DAT scores would that not set off a red flag with adcoms? I think so because those grades do not seem to be from the same person. Usually people with high GPA's usually do better on DAT than your scores. Good shot but I would say retake man, though with your other credentials you may well gain acceptance somewhere ok.

    He's got a very good point, I'd retake and show them what you can really do.

    My recommendation would be to study schaum's outline and kaplan blue for two or three times, particularly the sentences or sections you highlighted during your first study (if you ever did that).
