Solid LORs but cannot get the committee letter from school due to GPA

I'm thinking I should probably retake the MCAT or would a SMP be helpful in this case?

I think your GPA is fine. MCAT is definitely on the low side. I wouldn't shell out the bread for a SMP just yet. Re-take MCAT and go from there. Cheers.

Your MCATis really low. I'm not sure what the exact conversion is but I think maybe around a 22-23. You probably should retake after studying hard. If you can get it up some it would provide you with greater opportunities. Good luck.

I apologize for late reply, just got back to having internet access.

What do you mean by community? I did my Undergrad in Atlanta, but I live/from a city near Savannah, GA

You said you're a minority. What underrepresented community are you part of?
