    Why do they list PAT?
    From what I understand RC is a lot more important...but I see so many more statistics about the perceptual ability section.

    That's not true! Every school is different. Some care about RC more than PAT and vise versa. I know for a fact that Midwestern (AZ) and ASDOH are the exact opposite as far as RC and PAT!

    Midwestern cares about RC more than PAT and ASDOH cares about PAT more than the RC.

    that's good to hear. but i guess ASDOH doesn't really about DAT scores anyways...we all know what they care about.
