    Got a really low score on verbal.. below 6 .. did good on all other sections.. have an outstanding GPA... so do I still have a chance. As far as I am concerned, out of my whole application my verbal is bad, but other then that I have everything else.. any comments are greatly appreciated.

    Wow..looks like both you and med_skool_fool just got screwed on that section :(
    He got a 5 on it.
    Sorry to hear that guys.
    While I hate to say it...I really think you should take the test again...if you haven't applied yet, I would recommend against it. If you have already started..then apply to just a few schools. I don't really know for sure...maybe someone else can tell you for sure if a lower score like that would get you in some place. I think some guy got into MCOW with a 6 on the Verbal. Not positive though.

    I was in the same situation with my mcat... got a really low score in the verbal and good scores in the other sections... mediocre GPA... but there is hope! Im actually getting interviews... so don't let a low verbal score get you down. If the rest of your application is good, I wouldn't worry about it

    what about if you got good scores (not great) in the Bio and verbal section but a low one in Physical sciences. How do you think they will view that?

    allengal: I think having a lower score in Physical sciences isn't as bad as having a lower score in verbal. I think the attitude of a lot of medical schools is "Hey we can teach him/her science... but we can't teach verbal reasoning." But that's just what I think.

    My lowest score was in PS too (an 8), had a 10V, 11B though... if i'm asked about it, I'll just be honest and say that Physics is not my strongest subject... end of story... so don't worry :).
