    Does anyone know how old DAT score can be. I took mine in Oct 97 and scored 20/20. I know some schools do and some don't accept it. I was wondering if anyone did get accepted or was interviewed at any with an old DAT??
    Thanks

    I believe that most schools will not accept a score over 3 years old, and that some (a very few) will not accept a score that is over 2 years old.

    Your score is 5 years old, and I don't believe ANY schools will accept it, although I may be wrong. You mentioned that you know some will accept it -- what schools are those, if you don't mind me asking?

    Honestly, I don't think any schools will accept it. I suggest you take it again.

    I can't speak for other school. But at ucsf, I know for sure that letter of rec is good for 2 yrs, DAT score is good for 3 years.
