    • Hi there, Writing to see if I should re-take my GRE this late in the cycle. My GRE was 154 V and 149 Q (yikes) and my writing was 3.5. Not my greatest scores on a standardized test. The other aspects of my application are alright , 3.75 cGPA and a 3.7 sGPA. But I just can’t kick this feeling that my GRE will hold me back. Should I retake and do better or make the best of what I got?  Thank you
    • You're welcome. BTDT 
    • Dude, I'm the king of average.  Also, my average is lower than yours.  You are fine 🙂 Those with Kinesiology majors have been kicking butt in my cohort, especially with the functions/actions of the muscle groups.  You will have fun with that in dissection labs if you have one.    
    • yup. from the other side...the "emergent patient" sent from clinic who looks good from door and you KNOW your 2 hr workup will find nothing. Thankfully decision rules sometimes help. I recently got someone "coughing up blood who needs to be ruled out for PE". looks great. heart rate 70. good sat. not tachypneic. clearly bronchitis in a young smoker. Wells score 1(for single episode of "hemoptyisis"-blood tinged spit- THE PREVIOUS DAY). documented: nad, wells score 1. cxr neg. chance of PE <1.3%. discharged. no labs. no cta. discharged.
