    Wow. Just got my MCAT in and I got an 11/7/8/Q. Am I toast? I feel OK about the others but a 7 in PS! IF I retake in August I know I will do worse--I have zero time to study this summer--so that's out of the question.

    Anybody have experience with these type of numbers and a 3.3 GPA? I'm a practicing occupational therapist with lots of good life experiences.

    Does the 7 kill me?

    I got in to two schools (DO) with a 26, and a 3.2. Have no fear. When I went in to my interviews, I knew my grades were low but I gave a great answer when they asked me to explain my low freshman average and all was well. Try not to freak out yet!

    I think you have a pretty good shot at any of the DO schools. Your MCAT and GPA are pretty much around average, but I think your health care experiences and "lots of good life experiences" will make you valuable in the eyes of the adcoms. The 7 in PS is not that big of a deal in light of your background experiences.

    you can get in. I finished with a 28 MCAT - 12,7,9, "S" in writing and a 3.6 GPA.
    I applied to 8 schools, had five interviews and five acceptances.

    go to the individual websites and find the schools you are interested in, and apply quickly. The earlier the app is in, the earlier you can interview and get accepted...everything else for the year is cake!

    go, go , go!

    Thanks everyone for the replies. They really helped my piece of mind. Yosh, that's pretty wacky that we had all the same numbers (and letters). COMP is my 1st choice. If all goes well maybe I'll see you there in a year! Good luck to all of you starting this fall! I envy you.
