So I took my OAT today and these were my scores:

Bio: 390
Gen chem: 360
Ochem: 370
Reading comp: 400
Physics: 340
QR: 300
TS: 370
AA: 360

My question to you guys is: should I consider retaking the OAT?

The 300 in QR really sticks out to me and I didn't even do well in university math (C+ in calculus and B+ in statistics). Would admissions committees overlook the 300 since I did okay in the other sections and overall?

My GPA isn't very high right now (3.38) and I'm hoping to get admission without completing a degree, so I'm wondering if I should try and push my OAT scores a little higher to compensate?

Your scores look good, especially your science scores which are more important than QR. I wouldn't retake the OAT. Which schools are you applying to?

Oh my god don't even worry about retaking! Everything is above 300 and your TS and AA are absolutely incredible! It would be a waste of time and money to retake it. If your interviews go well, I'm sure you will get into all of those schools!
