    Hey guys,

    So I just took the DAT today and this is my breakdown:

    PAT: 21
    QR: 20
    RC: 22
    BIO: 21
    CHEM: 20
    ORGO: 21

    TS: 20
    AA: 21

    while some may think these are decent enough for an acceptance, the problem is that my GPA is 3.45 and I am sort of a late applicant (e-submitted 2 weeks ago). How long do you have to wait till you can take the DAT again? and are my chances really hindered by these stats?

    You have to wait 90 days before retaking. I don't think your chances are hindered, an AA of 21 is above average for accepted students.

    You are not late by any means. I applied last year with a 23AA and 3.39 GPA to 9 schools, 4 pre dec interviews, and I'm a D1 now.

    When I first read the thread title, "damn this student must've gotten a 15". :grumpy:
    When I clicked the thread and saw your score. "WHAT THE F*CK, ARE YOU KIDDING ME." :mad::mad::eek::eek::yeahright::yeahright:

    GREAT SCORES. job well done. You'll def. get interviews + acceptances.
    Dont retake

    We all know the feeling after we hit submit... (Dang I could have done a bit better) reality is you did a great job and should be sufficient for interviews. I wish you all the luck!

    Your score is good enough to apply dental schools.
