I am an immigrant, living in US for 8 years. I had some struggle taking MCATs for few reasons. One, I had a bit of a difficulty with Verbal Section due to my English skills. Not that I speak bad, but I don\\\'t have proficiency in reading and analyzing verbal material under timed conditions. I can\\\'t be too hard on myself, 8 years ago I only spoke it on elementary level. Another factor to affect my score was personal illness, for which I had to take a break off school. I went from my low MCAT of 20O to 29Q. I cross my fingers to play my cards right. Otherwise, pretty strong GPA, volunteering abroad and in local hospital, lots of research and extra curricular activities.
