    No. You are well above average and will get in somewhere as long as you don't blow your interviews off. Congrats!

    Good scores. The only score you MIGHT wanna worry about is RC. Otherwise, your application looks good.

    good scores. mine are real similar and i have been told by advisor to not worry about retaking. they say just focus on putting together good PS and getting good LOR's.

    personally, i want to retake becasue i feel that i know that i can do better, particularly on PAT and RC.

    Wow, good scores. I do not think you need to retake but, a good strategy would be to apply and then retake while your waiting on responses. Good luck!

    I wouldn't worry too much about RC. I think admissions will look at that score, but because your other scores are almost all ~85%tile, you should be fine. Work on getting good letters of reccomendation and personal statements.
