Hi guys,

Just got my MCAT score back today from the July 22nd test and honestly very disappointed and devastated with myself. I was averaging 508 on the AAMC practice tests, but I ended up getting a 502. :/ I studied so hard, and I felt like test would play into my favor when I got out of it.

I was in the middle of filling out secondaries, but now I feel like it's going to be pointless dropping a **** ton of money on those seeing as my cgpa is 3.169, sgpa 3.1.

Should I even apply to MD? Or even DO? I have been volunteering and shadowing, and I have fairly decent letters. I'm taking my gap year now, and I'm scribing, volunteering, and shadowing. What should I do?! I'm so lost, but I don't want to give up. I know I have it in me.
