Just took the OAT exam
A disappointed for bio and orgo.. bio i wish i had done a bit better. Orgo, i had a feeling i wouldn't do so well in.

QR: 360
RC: 350
Bio: 290
GC: 380
Orgo: 290
Physics: 310
TS: 320
AA: 330

Will the two low scores hurt my chances? Will it be asked about?
I have a 3.2 GPA and a pretty solid resume (5 research projects, 70+ hours Optom. shadowing, Leadership positions, awards, etc.
My top school is ICO and MWU (Downers Grove) which is a new school.

Overall good scores, but the orgo and bio will be asked about. It also depends on how well you did in those classes in undergrad, I was told they often compare it to that. Have you already applied?

I submitted my apps recently yes.
Bio i did good in, for orgo i struggled in school as well.. I received a C in orgo. But I did work as hard as I could, and even though my scores don't reflect the extent of my efforts, I can say that I did my best.
At this point, I don't know if its worth retaking the exam bc is my score good enough for my top two picks anyway?

i had the same AA and TS, also with a 290 in orgo. I did well in orgo though so I didnt get asked about it, but I think you still have a shot at interviews. Maybe email someone at the schools you're looking at and see what they think?

I don't think you'll have an issue. Just be ready to explain the scores during the interview.
