How Likely is it I meet the 2020-2021 MCAT cut off?

Would it make sense to rewrite and try to achieve a 128 in both sections?

You wont rewrite this cycle so just apply and see what happens. I knew applicants that applied with 1 below the previous year score and it dropped the year they applied and they got an II or even an A so just apply and see

I am wondering the same, 125/130/128/132 mcat. Is there a chance the C/P cutoff drops from 126 to 125? Or is application a waste of time 

You never know what will happen. However, in the last 5 cycles it has unfortunately not dropped to 125. :( These are the cut-offs for C/P in each year (missing 2016-2017 but I don't think it was a 125 unfortunately)

2015-2016 = 127
2016-2017 = ?
2017-2018 = 126
2018-2019 = 126
2019-2020 = 127 

You can see it gets kind of close to 125 with the back-to-back 126 in 2018 and 2019, but ultimately it'll be up to you whether you have the time to write the essays or the finances for the extra application fee.

Your other sections are amazing though and you should be proud, especially the 130 in CARS!

I originally had a 125 in C/P as well, and I was able to raise it to a 129 with lots of practise problems and addressing my weak points in chem/physics. C/P was my weakest point and by the end of another re-write I actually liked that section the best. If you do choose to re-write, it is definitely possible to raise C/P. :) Good luck with what you choose to do!

Thanks for the info and the kind words. Unfortunately I had absolutely zero physics background and my actual exam c/p section was very very physics heavy which definitely contributed to my lopsided score, quite a weird spread.
