      If I were in your shoes, I would probably hazard going through this cycle without a retake. If success was not to be found, I would inquire with the schools applied to and see if my BIO score had any impact on being denied pre/post interview, and then probably retake.

        I think Kahr is right. Think about starting to study for a retake around Christmas so you can take it somewhere about March if you don't get in somewhere (that way you still have time for a 3rd test if you for some reason need it before the next cycle). I think you have a good shot this cycle with that killer grad GPA and it would suck to study for and take the DAT 2x if you don't need to.
