    is it worth sending secondaries to nova and lecom bradenton or should i just focus on a retake
    ive already submitted primary to both those schools

    i also have my MD primary verified only for FSU but i havent sent secondaries. im assuming its not worth it to apply to the MD florida schools tho

    Try FSU, FAU, FIU, UCF, Nova, LECOM-B, Wm Carey, PCOM-GA, all three VCOMs, ACOM, KYCOM, LMU, AT Still, WVSOM

    And definitely retake the MCAT, but not until you fix that VR deficit.

    the thing is if i apply to those schools and end up retaking, im going to have to apply next cycle and ill be a reapplicant.
    should i apply anyway and end up probably being a reapplicant?

    Yes, if you get shut out, but come back with a stronger score, then that should fix the problem.

    Are you URM/english not your first language? If youre a Spanish speaker you could always try the Puerto Rican schools, they dont mind low verbal so I hear

    I would regroup, shoot for 510 and apply when I knew my score.
