I took the DAT once before and got a 17, but I barely studied for it. I am now scheduled to re-take it September 6th (in 2 days), but due do some family circumstances, I barely studied the last few weeks, and I am almost certain I won't do as well as I hope. That means, I might have to take it for a third time. My question is how bad does it look to schools if I do end up taking the DAT three times to achieve a good score? I am trying to decide whether to take it September 6th and go from there or just cancel that appointment and schedule it for when I'm ready, which all but guarantees that I won't get in this cycle. Any advice would be helpful!
