I took DAT today. AA 21, Science 22, PAT 16. I am going to retake it. I am really stressed...freaking PAT. Will I get interviews with low PAT? I need some inputs..i am depressed..didn't want to worry about DAT anymore from today. freaking a.

Ditto, t12Kim, don't retake it unless an adcom asks you to at your interview. I would wager they won't even ask you about it. My buddy got a 20 AA and a 16 PAT and both LSU and UT Memphis accepted him.Dr.SpongeBobDDS said:t12kim, I can tell you are the type of person who can never accept that things are "good enough". You lay awake at night worrying about trivial little details that other people would never notice or care about. You are rarely if ever satisfied with your own performance. Congratulations, you have all the makings of a great dentist.
But in this case it is time to just relax and be proud of your achievement. 21 AA is awesome and going to get you tons of interviews; most schools won't even take a second look at your PAT. Retaking that monster isn't worth the stress, time, or risk of getting a lower score.
