    No, your scores are excellent. Unless you are bored and have nothing else to do be my guest.

    I agree, don't take it again unless your GPA is really low, or you want to get into Harvard, UCSF, or UW. Even then, you'd probably have a good shot with a 21/21 with the right ECs.

    dental schools will take DAT scores up to 3 years old, some will only use 2 year old DAT scores, but all in all, you'll be fine!

    :cool:

    i just borrowed those kaplan review materials from ppl who took the course before. the flash cards from kaplan review helps a lot.

    i also bought that computerized DAT review thingy, it's actually harder than the real DAT...



    and by the strength god gave me:)
