I initially took the Kaplan blue book exam and did fare without being timed. After about a month of studying on my own, I signed up for the Kaplan DAT course so I took the diagnostic exam under test conditions on the computer. I my AA is 18 with an 18 on all three science sections. But my QR is 17 and PAT 16. First of all, is this a good indicator of my true scores on a real DAT? If you have taken the $1200+ course from Kaplan, please tell me your experience from taking the diagnostic exam vs. taking the real exam. Am I doomed with an AA of 18? I have a cumulative of 3.5 but my science GPA is much lower, I am guessing around 3.0-3.2 at best. I retook a couple of prerequisites b/c of C's initially and then got B+'s afterwards. Where do you think I stand compared to other applicants? Thanks.
