    What should I do with an MCAT score of 29L? My sections were: 12p, 07v, 10b, and L ws. Should I consider retaking with both a low verbal and writing section? Thanks for the input.

    I don't think a combo of low W and VR scores is gonna cut it.

    Yeah, I was kind of worried about that after seeing my scores. I appreciate the response.

    Don't worry much about the writing, get the verbal up 2-3 points (31-32 is a very good score).

    So you both think retaking it would be my best option?

    Yes, you should definitely retake. Some schools will screen out applicants who have below an 8 in any section. Writing doesn't really matter, but you definitely need to bring up your verbal. I've heard Examkrackers 101 is really good, you should also take lots of practice exams, as many as you can.:luck:

    Is applying a lost cause? Would there be any chance of getting accepted with these MCAT scores?

    I think it would be hard, unless you have a really good GPA and ECs.
    I would call schools you are interested in to see if they will screen out MCAT sections below an 8.

    It you are not a native speaker, I think they will consider. Of cos, you have to have other good stuff. Still I will apply to more school if I were you.
