increased at all!!!!!:(
( questions were not hard at all,,i don't know why I got 16 on bio..
I guess I did huge trucks of mistakes.. :mad:

Wow, Congrats, great score for 2nd time. Did u study less for bio second time, is that why ur bio score lower than 1st time? 16 is a little low, but I think it should be ok, since some schools look at AA, and TS more than individual sections. Well, just chill, at least u are DONE with DAT forever. :thumbup: I wish I can get scores like ur on my 2nd time.


Ur 1st DAT score are very similar with my mine. I got 18 on bio and 16 on RC first time. I am taking my 2nd DAT very soon, can u please tell me how u studies 2nd time compare with 1st time? Especially for Gchem and Ochem? Did u just simply do more practice questions or read more?

Sorry for lots questions, thanks~

You got a 19/19/17 and have a 3.5 GPA. Why are you retaking it?

first time. I took kaplan course while i was attending my semester..

however, i went to kaplan lecture only 2 times :rolleyes:

I did all the material for while i was preparing my first DAT.

when I was preparing for the second one...

it was super hard to concentrate on studying cus u know..

when studying same thing,,u feel like u know everyting...but u are not :(

I read kaplan review book super carefully on every section

and that is why i got perfect on gchem and ochem..

the only material for me was kaplan review note...

if you read very carefully on both ochem and gchem every section

u will be very fine on ur DAT..

however...i am kinda very disappointed on my bio section..

my major is bio..( however, the only bio class that i got A is gen biology pretty sucks at bio :thumbdown: )

i read dat review notes and i guess that is not enough for the real dat

however, i was too lazy to read another book and I was kinda bored to

study bio..since it is all about memorizing...

I guess u should read very carefully every details while u are studing bio section... i did not study on super details...and that makes me confused all the questions
while I was taking bio section on real DAT...

for PAT and RC to be honest,, i don;t know how to prepare..

actually, i did not prepare for the RC part at all..and i just

did topscore and achiver for PAT.. I usually got +25 on PAT every preparing exams....i feel real one is pretty hard..but it was very similar as topscore exceept angle ranking (it was hell!!!)

QR is very similar as topscore or achiever. Just speedy solving is the
key for this section...no hard questions but run out of time..

my topscore
bio/gchem/ochem/PAT/RC/QR
19 19 19 26 14 19
15 18 18 22 14 22
20 18 18 22 14 20

good luck u guys..

and always trust urself 100%!! that will help in ur mind controlling..

hey hey
I'm another international Korean pre-dent with low GPA... T_T

It's ok man
from my school, I know 3~4 korean dental students (all international!!!!!)
who's attending to IU, Penn, and Tufts (this year).

I didn't get to ask the IU guy about his stats,
but despite the Penn noona had insane stats.. 3.8 and AA of 24 I believe?
the hyung who's going to Tufts this year had
3.5 GPA and pretty high DAT..

I think you and I are in the same boat in terms of raising our GPAs before interview and get a freaking high DAT score...

Also, what I hear from alot of people.. the admin wants to see gradual increase of your grades..
so if your basic science classes kinda sucked.. it wouldn't be too bad of an idea to retake them, and tell the admin people about your situation in HoJu...

Anyways
best of luck
Hwa EE Ting!!!
