    Would my DAT biology score of a 16 hurt me in admissions? What about all my other scores that fall below a 20? Should I bother to retake the exam?

    The rest of my DAT....
    Academic Ave 20
    Gen Chem 23
    Organic Chem 18
    Tot Sci 18
    Reading 20
    Math 21
    PAT 18

    I wouldn't bother retaking the exam. Your overall numbers of 20/18 are far from shabby and still very high in the percentiles.

    If you did well in your bio coursework, and have taken some upper-division bio classes, then I wouldn't worry about the bio score. I don't think it will doom you if the rest of your application is strong.
