Shot in the foot for Chem PhD?

Just got my Chemistry GRE scores back and did not do well.

I'm coming from an anonymous top 10 school working with a relative famous professor in organic chemistry.

Biochemistry Major
GPA: 3.8/4.0
Reg GRE: 164V (93%) 164Q (90%) 5.0W (92%)
Chem GRE: 750 (61%)

I'm applying to Harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Caltech, Stanford, and Scripps. My PI is fairly certain I should get into all of them, but now this chemistry score is kind of glaring...
