Hi I took DAT 3 days ago...
Here are my stats :
PAT : 20
RC : 17
Bio : 19
Gchem : 20
Ochem : 22
QR : 19
TS : 20
AA: 19
sGPA : 3.70
100 hours volunteering/shadowing
No research/clinical experience

Should I retake my DAT? I already submitted my app to 11 dental schools about 3 weeks ago. My RC score is pretty low as well as AA. What do you guys think?

It depends on which schools you are applying to or wish to attend. I'd say not to unless you do not get in anywhere this cycle. I think your DAT scores are roughly in line with the average matriculant. Some schools might be leery of the RC score but I don't think it's enough to sink your app. If you have any opportunities to do research, do that and add a revision to your app in December if you don't hear anything or are still waiting for possible interview invitations.

I applied to CASE, USC, NYU, Nova, Stony, Buffalo, UCSF, Michigan, UoP, Western, and Florida. Should I add more schools to my list?
