I am currently an Asian male junior at an ivy league school w/ a 3.9 gpa and I have a avg amount of activites. I took the mcats this august and I got 8VR 12PS 14BS R. I really want to get into the UC's and Standford, but esp LA, but I also want a shot at top tier schools like Harvard, Hopkins, Columbia P&S and U Mich. I was doing really well on the practice exams the whole week before the exam on verbal. I was hitting 11's all week, but I just choked on the exam. So what I wanted to know is how badly will that 8 effect my chances at the top tier schools and what particular score do you think it'd be worth retaking the exam for. Thanks.
