Because so many schools give only pass/fail grades and do not rank their graduates, we ask that all applicants send us the results from any standardized examinations that they have taken, e.g. DAT, ADAT, National Board Examinations, GRE.
Unfortunately the ADAT exam is given only at Pearson testing sites in the US and Canada. Consequently, international applicants who submit both transcripts with grades ( not pass/fail) and GRE scores can ask to be exempted from the ADAT exam.
