    I would not worry to much about your scores they seem pretty solid. The only reason I would suggest retaking the DAT is because of the OChem and RC score. Some schools have a RC cutoff at 18. If you retake the DAT and improve the RC and OChem, you don't have to worry about these scores. Most schools take the most recent DAT into consideration while making a decision for admittance.

    those scores are pretty good. it probably depends on your GPA and target schools as to whether or not you need to retake it.

    If that was my score, I would retake it.

    I think your score is good. Nothing below the average of 17. Also Adcoms are going to know that the DAT is harder this year so they will be ok with 17 and 18 scores. You're fine. Congratulations "Dr-to-bee" :) :) :) :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
