AA=21 TS=21 PAT=21 RC=23 QR=16 Bio=24 Ochem=25 Gen Chem=17 I've used SDN a lot but I rarely ever post but I thought I'd share my DAT experience. I studied for approximately 2 months. Materials: Chads, Cliffs, Dat Bootcamp(best resource in my opinion),Destroyer very lightly. Bio (24)- Actual test wasn't too bad but I feel bad for non-bio majors. I probably had 6 questions not covered by cliffs including 3 really random evolution questions that I knew because of my major. Really heavy genetics but it was all pretty basic for the most part, being a bio major is what best prepared me and then after that bootcamp. GC(17)- I was so shocked by this score because I'd been scoring higher in GC than Ochem on all of my practice tests. What happened was I made the decision to skip this section and leave it for last because it was usually the most time consuming for me. I ended up not having any time by the time I finished ochem(less than 15 min) and rushed through and likely made easy mistakes, I knew my stuff and just blew it. On bootcamp I usually got 20's and 21's. Ochem (25)- I never memorized roadmaps or anything but I had an extremely difficult undergrad ochem professor so I was very well prepared. The funny thing is I only averaged around 20's on bootcamp but I happened to know all of the reactions I saw on the real thing so I may have been a bit fortunate. I knew all of the reactions on chads really well. PAT (21)- Easier than bootcamp for the most part. Keyholes were just as hard but different, the real dat just had a ton of faces on each shape. TFE was much easier on the real thing when compared to bootcamp only one or two where line counting worked. Angles were easy for me but I practiced them a lot. Hole punch was easier than expected only 3 or 4 really challenging ones if you can handle bootcamp it will be a breeze. Cube counting was pretty easy but I'm pretty sure I screwed up one entire set by the time I noticed my mistake it was too late and I was running out of time. Pattern folding was honestly on par with bootcamp but I struggled with a few for way too long so I don't think I performed too well. RC (23)- I was honestly shocked I didn't get a perfect score. I just read the article then answer the questions, I read a lot so I'd say i'm a pretty fast reader. I think doing search and destroy is insane because the articles really aren't that difficult to read but to each his own. I tried search and destroy on my first bootcamp reading test and got a 17 after that I just read the articles and usually scored around a 23. QR (16)- Didn't really study or care. Usually got 18's and 19's on bootcamp. Summary: I was pretty happy with my scores other than gen chem. I've called all of the schools I was planning on applying to and they pretty much told me that although it doesn't look great it won't be what keeps me from getting an interview if the rest of my application looks ok. I'm a pretty chill cat so I don't really freak out like a lot of people on here so the though of retaking hasn't and wont cross my mind. Here are the rest of my stats: oGPA:3.59 sGPA:3.53 Shadow hours:100 Service hours:2,000+ Job experience: I actually work with undergraduate admissions offices at Universities around the country and help them with their recruitment both internationally and domestically. It's a pretty amazing job and I could make a career of it if I wasn't going into dentistry, the schools I've talked to have been impressed with my work experience. I submitted my app on Tuesday 6/3 and applied to 13 schools. I'll let you guys know when the interviews start coming in, good luck! There is not silver bullet to doing well on the DAT it's all about just putting in the time.
