    Unfortunately, it's probably not likely that you will get in with a 5in the Verbal section. If you have higher numbesr on the Bio and Phys, then maybe a 5 wouldn't be that bad, but probably not in your case.

    Also, I don't know what else you have going for you. If English your first language? GPA? Age? Life experience? Those things matter as well.

    Now, this doesn't mean you shouldn't apply.

    I would send out your application now and check the box where it asks if you will be taking the MCAT again.

    Study hard and do better next time.

    Stay focused and don't give up. If you want it, you ca get there.

    Good luck to you!

    Hey,

    There is hope.... Acutally I score 4 on verbal twice... can't beat huh... but my other are 11P 10B. English is my second language, I grew up in HK. And finally, after the horrible and frustrating application process, I finally got in two school, NYCOM and Des Moines. If you have the right attitude and heart, you could get in too.... trust yourself!! :D :D :D
