    Hi, I'm a reapplicant this cycle. My scores are

    Perceptual : 23
    QR: 19
    RC: 23
    Biology: 19
    Gen Chem: 20
    Organic Chem: 19
    Total Science: 19
    Academic Average: 20

    The issue is I took my test in June of 2013. I know some schools have a 2 year DAT limit (ie UoP when I called them and they recommended I retake it for more recent scores).

    I previously had a borderline 3.0 BCP GPA but since my last cycle I have shown a massive upward trend with a 3.9 BCP GPA in my last 3 quarters. I am currently waitlisted for Roseman.

    I scheduled a retake in August following admission's advice of updating my scores. My question is, should I list my future date of retake on my app? I heard if I do put a futre retake date, it puts my app on hold for schools that otherwise would consider my old scores. Or is it better to just list my future retake?

    Thanks for any insight you guys can give!

    I'd say if you're definitely going to retake it, list it. You can always fax your unofficial scores if they will take them! August isn't that late.
