Hey there, Joel. If you're pulling data from a date-field into your campaign via personalization, it's going to be formatted like this: July 6, 2015.

While there isn't a way to adjust this, there may be a workaround: for instance, you could have a short-answer field with the data containing the dates formatted to your liking (such as 06/07/2015) and then insert this into your mailings with personalization. Feel free to let me know the specifics of what you're trying to accomplish here and I can dig into this deeper!
