I'm just checking -- med schools only look at the highest MCAT score, right? Someone was telling me the other day that they thought they took an average, so I just wanted to verify....

Depends, some look at highest, some look at latest, some look at average. I don't think it matters much after the initial screening for secondaries and such, since once adcoms examine candidates in detail they will no doubt look at all MCAT scores and make their choice based on that.
