How do med schools fig out your MCAT score?

    Do most med schools take the best of each section, best overall test score, or average the overall test scores if you have taken the MCAT more than once?

    I got a disappointing 9,10,9 the first time, and an even more disappointing 8,10,10 <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" /> I guess the last two scenarios don't apply to me, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

      The vast majority only look at the most recent scores despite the fact that you may have scored higher in one particular section on the MCAT you took the year before. With so many applications, I hardly believe many have the time to take an applicant's previous score into consideration. I don't know of any that specifically average the score but that would be really cruel to many applicants including myself. :)
