I was wondering how much my Reading Comprehension score will hurt my admission chances. As ridiculous as this may sound, should I retake with my low RC score? I know that this is the most important section on the exam. My cumulative GPA and Science GPA's are 3.7.

PAT: 23
QR:22
RC:18
BIO:23
GEN CHEM:22
ORGANIC CHEM: 22
TS:22
AA:21

If anyones curious, I studied for two months using Bootcamp, Chad, Destroyer, Cliffs, CrackPAT. After using these materials, the real test felt very familiar. I highly recommend all of the above.

My scores are similar, but I made an 18 in some other section. You are good.

The general rule is if you made a 16 anywhere on the DAT, then it is a possible red flag. If you make 2 sub scores that are 17 or less, then it is definitely a red flag.

Considering your other high scores and good GPA, I doubt adcom will even notice the 18 RC.

DAT discussion forum.....
Dude some people wanna post here and not in the DAT discussion forum what's it to you? If the mods see the post as being relevant to one section as opposed to the other then they'll move it it's not your job
