    If you retake the OAT's do schools look at the scores from each time you took it or do they just look at your highest score?

    I'm wondering because I'm supposed to take mine in 2 weeks, but I feel very unprepared, so I'm debating on whether or not I should still take it and see how I do, and retake it if I need to, or just reschedule it for a later time. Thanks for your help!

    Take the test when you are READY. Do not take the test before that. It is so early in the process that you have time to take the test if you are planning on applying in august.

    It is better to take the test and score well the first time then to mess up because optometry school will ask to see both scores.
