    Hi,

    I just took my pcat and need some advice from you guys:

    Chem: 97
    Math: 95
    Bio: 89
    Verbal: 70
    Reading: 16
    Composite: 88

    English is my second language and I have a hard time understanding those reading questions... I'm planning on applying for TX school... My gpa at community college is 3.9 and I have no bachelors degree... 100+ hrs of volunteering at hospital pharmacy!

    Do u think that low reading score will hurt my chances? Should I take pcat again?

    Thank you in advance

    i got 93 composite with 34 writing 26 reading. did really well on science but my writing and reading scores are horrible.

    i still received 7 interviews already (with 3.25 gpa)
    those arent top schools but still.

    u have chances a lot! ur composite is good. make sure to check or contact schools for minimum pcat. some schools have cutoffs like 20+ on each section but with ur composite u will be fine :) goodluck!
