    Here's my scores:

    PAT: 20
    QR: 17
    RC: 17
    BIO: 21
    GC: 18
    OC: 18

    TS: 19
    AA: 18

    The only score that is shocking is 17 RC. I spent too much time on the first passage (didn't really follow the strategy I had learned), and then the prometric pc lagged like hell when I was trying to fill in "C" for the last handful of questions, so a few actually ended up blank :scared: I was averaging 21-22 on achiever... That's the only reason I would retake, the others were about on par.

    I have a 3.3 GPA in Microbiology from UCLA... All I want is to get into dental school SOMEWHERE. What are my chances? Should I think about retaking?

    Personally if I were you, I would retake, I think those scores would be pretty decent if your GPA was higher but your GPA is below average at most schools

    A retake would definitely increase your chances. I would recommend one as well.

    is a retake feasible at this point in the game? I have to wait until Aug 30th to do so, and I think the only score I'll really improve on is RC, maybe math.

    Then your best option would probably be:

    1. Just send out your scores for now, complete those applications ASAP.

    2. Then, after you finish retaking, send in the new scores without telling the schools.
