    Call all the schools you are planning to apply to and see if they have cutoffs for RC scores. Apply to those that don't. Nice AA and GPA!

    I'm amused by the mathematically impossible GPA information you provided here. Anyway, 16 RC seems too low that simply adding more schools may not be the solution.

    It's a typo. It's supposed to be non science GPA.

    Those are great scores overall and an excellent GPA. I wouldn't stress it too much. I am risk-averse so I applied to as many schools as I could, so if it offers you peace of mind go ahead and apply to a few more. I reckon you'll be having no problem scoring invites for interviews.

    I reckon that your reckoning should be re-reckoned.

    I know of several people who've been accepted into dental school with similar stats in their QR section.

    I suggest that you spend some more time on SDN.
