Hi all, I recently took my DAT for the first time and also applied to dental school for the first time this summer. Do my scores listed below look good alongside a strong overall and science GPA (3.76 overall and 3.76 science)?

PA-21
QR-19
RC-20
BIO-20
GC-19
OC-17
TS-18
AA-19

The organic and total science scores are my main concerns, but I've heard no section below 17 with an AA of 19 or better is good. Also, I made As in my undergraduate organic classes with a B in one lab through hard studying, but it still has always been a more difficult subject for me for some reason. What do you guys think of the scores for this application cycle? Should I retake?

That's good to hear! Do you mind me asking which schools you applied to? I've applied to 12 and so far it has been waiting and more waiting....haha.

Thanks, man. But seriously - don't get riled up by the numbers you see on this board or the timeline. Plenty of people get in with 19 AA.
