So I just took my DAT a few days ago....

I did well on every section... except math.
AA: 19
Bio: 19
Gen chem: 19
Organic: 19
Total Science: 19
PA: 19
Reading: 21
Math: 15

So do you think the 15 will hurt me? Obviously it's not going to help me any.... but of all the sections, I would think math is lower on the scale of importance.
What do you guys think?

i heard rc is more more important than math
in dental school we do not need math a lot

but we need rc skills... I have the opposite situation

That makes sense....
I'm not really even sure why they test us on math... or why they only give like 10 minutes to do 40 problems :rolleyes:

I've heard that most schools have a minimum requirement of 15 for each section.... if that's true, then I guess met the minimum at least.

19 is solid.... I dont think it would hurt you at all.

... Now a 17 or below in reading.... that might raise an eyebrow (unless English isnt your first langage or something)
