    Just asking for what you guys think....heres my scores

    Verbal 63
    Bio 90
    Reading Comp 90
    Quantitative 96
    Chemistry 48
    Writing 3

    Compostite 87

    I knew I was going to do sucky in Chemistry. It was my last section of the test and I haven't taken any Orgo yet. I was a dummy and set my schedule up so Orgo's were my last two science classes. Anyways I have a 3.6 GPA, just started working in a pharmacy. Just curious as to if you think that 48 in chem will keep me from getting in. One more question~is it possible or smart to write them a letter when applying explaining why I think I got a low score here. Do they encourage this kind of stuff when you're applying or no?

    Thank you so much for any responses.

    Seems like you've got a great base built up to work towards applying. An 87% composite is still a great score so I don't think you need to worry at all. If you have great grades in Chemistry/Orgo then you don't need to worry about that particular subsection. Showing you got an 'A' in those will show them that you are indeed adept at that subject. I don't think a letter would be required nor wanted, just show them with your transcripts.

    Best of luck in your applications,
    Ryan.

    Although that wasn't addressed to me, I'd like to refer you to this thread for information of study materials of successful PCAT writers.
