Hey everyone,
Hope you guys enjoyed seeing the eclipse. :ninja:
I took DAT this past week.
AA 23, TS 24, BIO 22, CHEM 29, ORGO 26, RC 17:smack:, PAT 25, QR 21
My overall GPA and science GPA are 4.00.
150+ shadowing hours.
I used to be a chemistry tutor in college
English is my second language. I know there is no excuse. :shy:
There are many schools that have RC cutoff at 18.
Do I stay a chance of getting accepted? or Should I retake the DAT to boost up my RC?

Thank you for helping me with this.
:highfive:

Your stats are amazing!!! Everything else is great, I would say don't worry about a retake because the rest of your scores help make that RC a little less of a downfall. Good job!! Be proud of yourself and enjoy the rest of your summer! :)

Great scores! You'll definitely get interviews!

I have a week left before my DAT and I'm freaking out because I'm not scoring that high on practice tests. Should I give myself more time or try to cram this last week or just postpone it another couple of weeks?

My buddy @Life of Pablo got around the same RC score and has around 8 interviews already. Not to worry! Your AA and TS are impressive
Thank you, this made me feel so much relieved. I'll be applying next cycle. In a meanwhile I'll give dental schools I want to apply a call and ask them specifically about my RC score. I hope my RC score won't hold me back.

Very impressive stats! Don't retake! Apply broadly but your stats are great.
I believe they can't look at a RC score from someone who's English is their second language the same way they would if it was your first language. Good luck this cycle!
