    Alright so is says on AADSAS "List any supplemental academic enrichment programs and/or post-baccalaureate programs in which you have participated to enhance your preparation for dental school.
    You may list programs experienced in high school and/or college that may include (but are not limited to): summer academic enrichment programs targeted to disadvantaged students; DAT preparation courses offered by an academic institution or commercial entity, and post-baccalaureate programs.Provide the name of the program, a brief description, and total hours of participation, and dates of experience(s)."

    So I was just wondering if I should put that I took a kaplan course. Does it look bad if I take the DAT and only do average? Or would should I put it because it is like taking an extra 6 credit hours on top of a full schedule?

    Nope. It doesn't look bad if you only managed average scores with the Kaplan course. Especially if you've been taking it with the school courses.
