    Hi,
    I am applying to American dental schools. My scores for the Canadian Dat are 21 AA and 16 Perceptual. Although i am sure that my perceptual will increase to a 20, i am quite certain that i will not be able to match my 21 in AA in the American Dat. Should i write the American Dat?. My cgpa is 3.44. Thanks

    If you have the time to re-write the DAT (Canadian or American), I would suggest you do it because some of the schools have a cut-off (correct me if I'm wrong, but Howard's cut off is 17). You may also want to email the schools that you're interested in to see what they think, or to see whether they have a cut-off score.

    since you don't write anything when you take the DAT anymore...I think you guys should practice saying take...one person say it and it'll catch on really quickly
