    I think that you have a great chance with a 28Q and a 3.6 GPA. You should have decent ECs, write a good PS, and apply to a wide range of schools. Another person posted a similar question regarding their stats (29 MCAT, 3.5 GPA), so you might want to check out that thread.

    Is the 28 balanced? If it is, then you've got a good shot. If it's lopsided, then you might want to think about retaking.

    You are very close to the average score for matriculants. I would go ahead and apply to a wide range of schools. Only retake if you think you can significantly improve your score.

    You know your application best.
    Be realistic, yet confident.
    Good luck.
