I take the MCAT in a week. Took AAMC FL2 yesterday and got a 504. My past few practice exams have been right around this score also. I was really hoping for 510+. Should I postpone? Would a 504 be good enough to get into med school? MD or DO, leaning more towards DO.

While your FL is predictive, it's not always an exact prediction. DO would generally be happy with anything from 505-510 if the rest of your app is solid.

That being said, you're up against a wall. Either now or Jan. So the question you're really asking is "Can I improve 5-10 points in 4 months?" and the answer to that depends on you, your dedication, and whatever else you have going on (work, classes, etc).
