    Welcome to the 15 on the QR club! :D Same thing happened to me...satisfied with all of my scores, except for that one little eyesore on the paper. With your TS and AA and especially your GPA the way they are you have a really good shot. I'm almost positive you're in at NYU, Boston and maybe Tufts. Pittsburgh and Columbia might be looking for higher stats though. The problem herein lies with your QR score...some schools actually have a cut-off of 16 on any section. That means people like you and I (unless they make an exception) are out. If I were you, I'd call some of the schools you're applying to, or thinking about adding, and see what their cut-off is or if they even have one. You also might consider adding a couple schools to your list that don't care too much about QR (most don't by the way--it's considered antiquated by most schools and at the bottom of their importance).

    i averaged about 17 on every part on the practice exams. i made 18 only once on PA and OC on the topscore cd. I never expected to do this well.
