Some schools take the highest scores from each test and combine them. In your case, that would be a 31 (V8 P11 B12). Most schools that do this are DO from what I understand. You're VERY competitive at those schools with an above average sGPA and cGPA, and an above average MCAT with or without the combined school (the 6 may hurt you at some schools though).

Are you ESL or URM? That might help... otherwise MD will be rough and you might want to think about saving your money or using it to apply DO.

Here's a list of which ones do what: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/how-do-schools-view-multiple-mcat-scores.822285/

I can see it being a problem. But, I think the only thing to do now is NOT retake the MCAT, but to try an app ccyle and see how things shake out.

Aim for DO programs and low tier MD schools, and your state school (if any).
