DAT
Acronym for Dental Admissions test; requires knowledge in genetics, biology, chemistry, quantitative reasoning, perceptual ability, organic chemistry and reading comprehension.

Considered by pre-medical and pre-dental students alike to be a scrawnier version of the MCAT, with discrete questions as opposed to the mind-bending passages that the MCAT puts you through.

Contains some truly sadistic perceptual ability questions, in which one is supposed to visualize the folding pattern of a 3-D object resembling nothing you have seen before in your life containing shapes you've never before seen in your life.

Like the MCAT, upon proximity to the test, you're only as good as your last practice test score, which sucked.

An 18 is regular, but in order to get into some of the better schools in the nation, like San Antonio, the standard DAT score is an 18.6, so take another practice test.
Student A: "Dude, it's cool that you copy my physics homework and all, but isn't your DAT score going to suffer?

Student B:*laughs* "I don't have to know that physics problem, I'm taking the DAT!:

Student A: Oh yeah, I forgot. *under breath* stupidass.

I passed up almost assured sex with a cute bridesmaid because of the DAT.

Derived from THAT.

Commonly used by those who are either too lazy to add the fourth letter, or teen homeboys and teenybopper girls who think that it 'iz totali awzum to speel inkorectly'. These people commonly listen to bastardised punk and 'NU Metal'

dat
Originally from the expression dat ass, in which the targeted female derriere is said to induce an emotional response of amazement and/or attraction.

The same principle applies, except the 'ass' is replaced by whatever object is source of the impression. Plural version can also be used ("dem ...", see Example 3).

Can also be used in a sarcastic way with respect to the above utilization. (See Example 4, 5)
Example 1:
"Hey man, have you seen this awesome dancer?"
"Oh wow, dat skill."

Example 2:
Friends watching Starcraft 2 streams:
"Dat micro"

Example 3:
When a new movie/video game is released with insane graphics:
"dat CG" or "dat graphics" or "dem graphics" (plural version)

Example 4:
Dota2/LoL context, when referring to a hero as being terrible/bad:
"dat <hero name here>"

Example 5:
When watching two snails racing against each other:
"dat speed"

Example 6:
Big boobs are being displayed.
"dem boobies"

dat
is a short way of saying that mainly used in text messages. In miami fl its meaning is random..just pay attention to how its used in a sentence
example:you are walking down the street and your friends sees you..you are wearing new clothes so she says "dat"

dat
Dat = That
Despite popular opinion "dat" is not only used by "lazy people." Dat can be used by anyone online when the monotonous word "that" does not suffice to convey their excitement or appreciation.
"DAT RIFF!"
