    Here are my DAT scores that I got on 7/26/2011:

    PAT 19
    QR 17
    RC 19
    BIO 20
    GC 20
    OC 20
    TS 20

    Do you think I should retake it?

    Well how much did you study/what materials did you use? A small breakdown would help.

    Sure, definitely re-take, those are horrible scores. :rolleyes:

    Seriously, you should only consider a retake if your GPA is a 2.5.

    Nice job on all of your sections. It seems as if QR really brough down your AA, which sucks bc u did well on everything else. I would retake it one more time since youre sooo close.

    Congrats on those scores, you should celebrate and then hit those books again. lol

    I used Kaplan, DAT Destroyer, crackdatpat, crackdat reading, and DAT achiever. I studied a little bit in december and did a full bootcamp of studying for a month leading up to the exam.

    Oh and my gpa is 3.9. See I want to take the test again but if concerned about getting a lower grade, especially in biology and PAT.

    Thank for the advice. Oh and I'm an international student so I'm applying everywhere as out of state. Do you think that changes my chances of getting in?
