Entirely depends on what your goals are. If you're trying to matriculate to the best TX programs, you will likely need to retake. If your goal is TX MD or DO, I think it makes sense to apply this cycle. If by January you haven't gotten any love, start studying for retake scheduled for March/April/May. If it was exam day anxiety, make sure you take steps to address this before a retake.

I have a 3.98 GPA, but my stress got the best of me and I got a balanced 505 (took in June). Other than a Texas DO, did I just invite myself to a gap year with a MCAT retake?
Apply to all the TX schools anyway. Maybe also TCOM. Don't beat yourself up!
