Canadian DAT application timing

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

I was planning on writing the Canadian DAT this month (February 24, 2018), but due to extenuating circumstances I won't be able to. I was wondering if I wrote the next DAT (November 3rd, 2018), Would I still be able to apply to dental schools for that cycle (i.e write Nov 2018, apply Dec 2018)? The deadline is generally Dec 1, and it takes 8 weeks to get DAT scores back. Would I be able to apply to schools even if I don't have my DAT scores back?

Thanks in Advance

Double check each school’s requirements as they state usually what’s the last test day they will accept for each application cycle. For most if I remember correct you’d be fine in doing that

Edit: Caveat is that you have to select that the schools are sent a copy of your scores as you are registering for the DAT

Yeah you can do that. Thats what most people do but like longhaul said you gotta select the schools before you take the test. You should however be able to pay the CDA to send extra transcripts to schools you didn't include initially. I think its like $50 ea or something.
