I wouldn't retake, but I wouldn't apply either in Texas unless I got everything in order. Applications opened four months ago in Texas.

where do you think I have chances of applying? i've submitted my amcas, but only a couple days ago so I'm not verified still.

Apply everywhere with TMDSAS, it's one fee. Then there are a few more secondary fees with certain schools like A&M. I can't remember them off the top of my head now.

Apply to all TX schools, and any DO school.

Forget about MD schools outside of TX; they know you're staying in TX.



I received my mcat score 508 (125 psych, 126 cars, 128 c/p, 129 bio). I have a 3.7 cgpa, and 3.67 sgpa. I don't know if I should retake and wait until next cycle or take my chances applying this cycle. I'm a texas resident. What are your thoughts?

What is your GPA and what do you ECs look like? School don't accept based only on MCAT.

It's likely too late for Texas schools so if you really want to be here then you will most likely need to apply next year.

Edit: Not sure why you edited out you GPA but anyway. I would apply next year.
