Lots of folks with 28-29 get in (by virtue of the average being 30, lots of people are coming in just shy of this). They are in very different standing than those with below 27. I would break this thread into sub categories because you will get a ton of posts from the higher two scores and very few below that.

I got into my state school with a 29. It's doable but I knew I was borderline with my MCAT score. 30 is a nice 'round' number that people like to quote, but it's not a guarantee of a successful application. However, I think the above poster is correct that there's a huge difference in acceptance once you hit below 30. A 28 or 29 can be compensated by good GPA and/or EC etc. Once you hit 27 and below, it becomes noticeably harder to compensate. Exceptions exist, but your best bet is to retake if you are too many points away from 30.

I went from 6 in verbal to 9 :) (took damn thing 3 times to improve verbal) I think being non-native English speaker I am happy with my 9 :) I took Kaplan and was doing well there, but when I was taking a real thing I noticed that I was constantly running out of time. So I never got to the point of finishing my last 3 passages in each section (marking Cs always).

I just hope and pray... I dont want to take it 4th time....
