    Hi Suninmyeyez,
    Thanks for your inquiry. It’s hard to say if retaking the MCAT is a good idea. There is no guarantee that you will get a better score–there is always the chance your score will go down. Moreover, allopathic schools are highly competitive as you know, so there is no way to know what difference an additional point or two increase will make. Your GPA, school, major, extracurriculars, etc. have to be factored in too. If I had to say without knowing more about your situation, I would generally advise to not take the MCAT a third time. But if you would like a more thorough assessment of your situation, you might consider signing up for a one hour consultation so we could look at your situation in greater detail.
    Hope this helps.
    Best of luck with your applications!

    I have withdrawn from organic chemistry two times due to personal reasons. How will this effect my chances of getting into a US allopathic medical school?

    Thank you for your prompt answer.

    Dear Kayshawn,
    Thanks for your question. It’s impossible to answer your question fully without knowing about a lot more about other relevant factors in considering your competitiveness for medical school admission. However, I can say that, generally speaking, having two “W’s” in organic chemistry on your transcript is a negative. But it’s not necessarily a deal breaker if you have enough other positive factors. If you want to go medical school, I strongly encourage you to take this course at your home university and get this requirement behind you. Hope this helps.
    Best of luck with your applications!
