I just paid my registration fee yesterday and it says it will get processed tuesday and I will get a number in the mail by next week to schedule a test with.

But do you think its too late (by next week) to find an exam opening around the first week of august?

Thanks.

It all depends on the site you are taking the test in. Do not worry though, if your application is in early then you can take the DAT by beginning of september and still be in a good shape. this is what an admission personel told me.

It took them almost 2 and a half weeks to send me my confirmation number and I had submitted my registration fee on a Sat. I know other people have said that it takes about that long. You still might get lucky and find an opening in that first week of Aug as long as you are not picky about the time.

You can just go to the prometric website and use your SSN as the conformation # and you can sign up for a date. That is what I did, the letter just takes to long to receive

No and I have no idea why you do not need the number.
