    what subject did you get a 6 on? there are so many of us that are not genius, that doesn't mean that we are no good. u should try to take it again, i think. i am not an expert on this, but a 6 is below the average mcat takers.

    MTY,

    If 6 is your verbal and english is your second english, apply right away. The earlier you apply, the more chance you have. English is my second english and I got in DO schools with verbal scores of 7. I know quite a few people who got into DO and some MD schools with verbal scores of 6. Good luck!

    Should I apply?

    Simply answer this question

    Do you want to be a doctor?

    If Yes: then apply. If you don't, you never will be one even if you have 4.0 GPA

    If No: stop wasting your time and work on joining another profession


    Sorry to be so blunt, but don't sweat the numbers so much. If your gpa is decent you have a pretty decent shot. The MCAT is a dubious tool to weed out applicant and whettle down the numbers to manageable levels
    If you realize this and work on the other parts of the application your half way to med school.
