    I still have to take my DAT, but I am also currently enrolled in Organic Chem 2. We can choose to take the OChem final on July 15th or July 20th. I think I will be prepared to take the DAT around the same time, but I don't want to take them back-to-back. The only available DAT dates are July 13, 15, 18, 19, 26. What would you do?

      Me = July 13th DAT
      Orgo = July 20th

      about 1 week between them.

          O-Chem: July 15
          DAT: July 26

          An extra two weeks at this point will not make a huge difference for you, but and extra 10 days to review for the DAT will. O-Chem will be fresh on your mind, so you should be able to just study for the other sections.

            So this is assuming, you have already studied for all other section of the DAT, then you should take final on July 15th and take DAT on july 26th.

            But if that is not the case then later dates

              Oh yeah, and I agree with 104, take OCHEM 15th and DAT 26th.
              It turns out it takes weeks to get your DAT score up onto AADSAS and so I don't think that one week separation will make much difference anyway, and having ochem fresh is always a good thing before you take your DAT. Plus DAT q's are relatively simple- most likely nothing close to what you'll be tested on for your final, so you need to take that break from 'over-thinking-mode' to strategy-mode. Anyway, good luck on both!
