Hey everyone. I just took my DAT and got my unofficial score report:

PAT 17
QR 20
RC 25
BIO 23
CHEM 21
ORG 18

TS 20
AA 21

Okay so I'm not too happy about my PAT or ORG but I honestly didn't practice PAT at all so that was my fault.

My nsGPA is 3.99 and my sGPA is 4.0.

I'm curious if my PAT & OCHEM scores along with the fact that I'm applying later than I should will hinder my ability to get interviews/acceptances. Thanks :)

Your GPAs are basically flawless! A 21 AA is solid. I think you'll be fine. PAT is one of the least important sections I think...

Unless you are in Canada :(

Haha I think your scores are solid man , and you have an amazing gpa to go with it. I'm not an adcom member , but I think your solid bio and gen Chem scores will wipe any doubts that may arise from your ochem score (which isn't even a bad score )

Don't be paranoid just because all the SDN people that post have like 25s... That's not reality. A 21 is like 93rd percentile which is awesome :)! I think you'll have no problems. I'd love to trade my stats for yours to be quite frank.

I'm such a SDN noob it took me awhile to figure out where sig was and where to find your scores lol. Yeah we are PAT twins haha. I feel like I was doing better on my ochem practice tests so I'm kind of surprised I did so low on that section.

PAT is still important, but your other scores and GPA will surely help you out. You'll do well and I'm sure you'll have a few acceptances to choose from!

You killed gen chem though! Do you know if the unofficial score report is accurate? Are my scores likely to change?
Scores won't change unless there was some major disruption to the testing process like cheating/ a power outage. So there's a 99.99% chance you're good, congrats!!

Congratulations! Love that 4.o SGPA and so will the dental schools. Just curious, why the low Orgo score, did you run out of time? Your AA and TS scores will get in interviews especially with your GPA.

Wishing you the best..

I have no clue actually! I was doing better on my practice tests and felt okay. The test is all a blur to me now so I can't remember that section but yeah I was disappointed when I saw that! I do remember 1-2 problems where I kind of knew how to do it, but my study books didn't go over those specific concepts so I was stuck trying to remember how to solve it from my orgo classes like a year and a half ago.

What did you use to prepare for the Orgo?

I used the Kaplan DAT, Bootcamp, top score and some videos. My orgo section of the DAT didn't have very many mechanisms, which sucks because that is what I studied the most for.
Ok, I was just curious because a student with a 4.0 science SGPA that uses our materials would almost always score much higher.

But rest assured with your high gpa and other scores you will get interviews..

Wishing you the best..

Kudos to Nancy and Dr. Romano for DAT and Math Destroyer! They were, by far, the most valuable study materials in my arsenal for gaining the last few points. Will post details later! Thank you so much!!

There's a lot of RC methods floating around on this forum! Go find one lol! There's mine if you want also I kinda explained it in my breakdown. You need to find what works best with you and stick with it.
