I'd retake it. Anything below a 27 (from what Adcoms have said at info. meetings) you should retake the MCAT

Sounds like you have a pretty good GPA and extra curriculars. If you are applying for this cycle, your MCAT might cause some difficulties. If you are applying next year, you should possiblly retake.

I think you still have a chance to get into a school.

Retake.

Not even a question if you want an MD. All the other stuff is fluff...the MCAT and, to a slightly lesser degree, your GPA tell adcoms you've got what it takes.
