    and September is very late, so unless your carrying a 3.7+ and a 23+ your risking a lot.

    It might be late try taking it earlier if it is humanly possible.

    It's ok if you take the DAT in August... it's not early, but it's not really too late either. The important thing is to submit your application before that... DON'T WAIT UNTIL AFTER YOUR DAT! It takes 4-6 weeks to process your application so get your application in ASAP. You can submit your DAT scores after you take it in August.... if you wait until september to submit, the schools won't even look at your app until late october or november... whereas if you submit your app in June and then take the test in August, the schools can start reviewing it within 2 weeks of your test.
