I am a Canadian Student.

I took 2 Canadian DATs but I'm looking into applying to American schools this upcoming cycle.

I really want to upgrade my science scores but I'm scared that my reading and PAT would go down. The thing is chem/bio/organic chem/ math ..those things I can study for, but PAT and RC are obviously much easier on paper.

My stats are
1st DAT
BIO 19
CHEM 22
SCI TOT: 20
RC: 22
AA: 21
PAT: 21

2nd DAT
BIO 23
CHEM 21
SCI TOT: 22
RC: 20
AA: 21
PAT 21

Yes obviously my scores have changed but my AA and PAT is the same :(
Since now I can focus studying for DAT (summer!! yay) I'm thinking of taking the American DAT but am scared that I would do worse in RC and PAT section!
If I take it I would have to take it in mid/late June (also sending my application in mid/late June).

My cGPA is around 3.5 and sGPA is around 3.2 ish

In my experience I've found those sections harder on the US DAT. It's your call..if you think you need to raise up your AA. But I think you're fine, those are solid scores. Not sure if your sGPA will hold you back, but your cGPA is decent. If you have good ECs/statement you should get interviews.

PAT is harder on the US DAT because it's computer based. RC is easier on the US DAT, I'd say (more time & generally shorter passages).
I don't think you need to rewrite, though.
