    I've been taking practice DAT's & I can't seem to get above a 19, which
    worries me. Do y'all consider this a good score?

    Also, when taking the computerized DAT, are we allowed to fold scratch paper
    during the PAT? I went by the local Sylav & asked if this was okay, and the
    lady said she didn't see why not. I ask, because when I do this, my PAT
    score is always at least a 20 on the practice tests.

    Thanks.

    if you have a decent gpa and a 18 or better in all areas you will NO problem getting into school unless you act like a idiot at the interview. at most school the average dat score for enrolled students varies from 16-21. 19 is great 21 is almost a garanteed acceptance hay i a 17 and i just finised my 2nd year of course i have a great personality to go with it.

    The biggest part of taking the DAT is time management. If you are nailing 19s right now, you definitely in the game. Problem I had was during my practice tests----I would always, you know ;), have time to finish that last question. On the "real" test---man... that screen simply goes blank when time is up. So work on being under-the-gun. And if you score 19s across the board, w/ good grades and a passion for dentistry----you'll be just fine. Good luck.
