    Hello All,
    I am new to sdn and have recently taken the DAT. I must say that I did not take Kaplan and really only started taking practice tests the week before I took the real thing. (don't get me wrong...I studied for a long time!) I sort of (understatement follows...) choked on quantitative reasoning. The probability that I know my probability was in fact lower than anticipated. With that preface here are my scores.
    PA 22 (97.6%)
    QR 17 (64.0%)
    RC 20 (67.0%) (p.s. MUCH harder than expected)
    BIO 20 (87.4%)
    GC 22 (89.5%)
    OC 23 (93.7%)
    TS 21 (92.4%)
    AA 20 (85.1%)

    During the test I had felt like I should have earned a 17 AA, I honestly have no explanation for some of my performance. I should have studied probability, trigonometry, and word problems A LOT more! The worst part is that I knew I was running out of time. I am eager to see what admission committees will think of these scores. I get nervous when I see that the trend had been for scores to go up each year. On paper it looks like I should get in somewhere but I psyche myself into thinking that it will not be easy to do so.
    If you have not taken your DAT yet, do NOT stress! I believe that partially explains my QR score. Also good luck!! and God Bless.

    You did well. QR isn't a big factor. Stop stressing.
