    How long do you think it would take for new DAT scores to get to schools?? It would make sense to think that since they are done on a computer they are uploaded automatically to the mainframe, and then sent to schools. I read that it takes 2-3 weeks, seems too long in the age of computers. Any insight???

    I think it will take 2-3 weeks to get to school and extra one week for them to put it in your file and update, at most.

    EAK,

    The schools receive paper copies of your DAT scores, although the electronic copies are made available to them. 14 days is a safe bet!

    I took my DAT's September 16th and schools just put them in my file and now my files are under review at Columbia and Case. I would say 3 weeks (2 weeks for them to be delivered and 1 week for them to be processed) is a safe bet.
