    Hi Everyone,
    I need some advice on whether I should retake my MCAT or not? I am applying this year and signed up for the July 10th test.

    My GPA: 3.95
    MCAT: PS11 VR10 BS12 Q

    1 year of research
    160 hours of clinical experience as a volunteer
    2 years of tutoring - part time job on campus
    Part of dance team ~ 1 year
    Part of student-run camp organization ~ 1 year

    I am a california resident and I really want to go to a california school. Please give some advice as to whether I should retake the MCAT or not.
    Thanks

    No. Definitely not. You're around the 90th percentile with a well balanced score. Retaking would be application suicide. Just apply early and broadly, and you will get in somewhere across the country. Anyway, California schools are tough, but people do get in with 33's. I don't think your score will be the deciding factor in that.
