    Does it matter where you take the DAT? Do schools see the location where it is taken? Just wondering. I'm an Alabama resident, but want to reschedule for a week later and the testing center I'm registered for now is booked up for that Saturday. Would it matter if I take it in a different state?

    You can take the exam in Hawaii (if there is a center there). School's do not care and will not know where you take your exam. :luck:

    Kind of a related question....are percentiles calculated nationally or by the testing center. Would the center you choose have any affect on the difficulty or your percentile for a given score? Pry a stupid question...
