    Should I retake the MCAT with a 32M? I am kinda scared that the M will kill me. This is my second score, and the first one is a 30 Q, so I thought that might make up for the M. What do you guys think?

    What is the breakdown for the 32, and is the rest of your application below/above "average"?

    Since you're a Canadian, that is a tough call...maybe you should talk to individual Canadian schools you are interested in and ask them point blank what their cutoffs were last year and if they will take your first sitting's writing score. For American schools, I don't think it's worth it.

    I think a 32M isn't so bad. You might get asked a question about it, but the number score is more important. You have a "Q" previously so the schools would know you're capable of scoring higher. However, if all other things are equal between you and another candidate, the M could be the tie breaker.
