    I just took the DATs today, and planning on retaking in mid July. But I still want to start applying early in May. Can I just apply with my current DAT score and then mail them the newer score when I retake? or will that be too confusing for them to get differnt copies of different scores? anyone done this before?

    when you report your DAt scores on your application, there's a section where you can let them know that you plan on retaking it and when you plan on retaking it.

    I sent each school to which I applied a letter letting them know of my intention to take over the DAT's and also a tentative date of when they should expect to receive my scores! Also, follow up by calling them to make sure they received the letter.
    Hope this helps!

    Just contact via correspondence or just call. What were your scores?

    there is a section in AADSAS where you can put in your current score and your retake date.
