    RC - 20
    Bio - 18
    Gen Chem - 21

    it depends on your GPA and EC's.
    If not strong in other parts, I would retake

    I don't think you should be extremely disappointed! I think you did okay!

    With that awesome GPA, I think you'll be fine :) If you have the time and are applying next cycle, then you could retake if you wanted to ease your nerves. Though, just remember that although stats are a big proportion of the application, ECs, shadowing, and other parts are important too.

    I would only retake it if you don't get any acceptances.
