Hi, everybody!

Please, help me make a decision. My sGPA is 3.85 and MCAT is 508 129/124/129/126.
Should I retake or try to apply with these stats?

I'm a first generation immigrant.
Would it affect the way the admission evaluates my CARs score?

Thank you all in advance!

In most states, your stats are fine.

What were you scoring on your practice tests? (range and median)

I took about 4 Princeton tests and scored in the 504-507 range. Since they seem to be much harder than the real one, I thought I'd get a higher score. The CARs section was in 80th percentile and on the actual test I felt pretty confident. The reason I seek advice is that I don't want to risk if I have a chance for acceptance with my stats. I'd rather spend my time working on the other parts of my application.
