Long story short, I had a 510 mcat with a 124 cars and retook it and got a 510 with a 123 cars :( How toxic is a 123 and what should I do?

Likely fine, as CARS gets the most slack of any section. It won't look good that you dropped, but since it's only a point I don't think it's terrible.

Shouldn't affect your DO chances much, especially with an otherwise solid score.

considering there is no threat of injury/death From a 123 then it's not toxic at all lol :)

For DO schools, that is completely fine since your overall MCAT is high

Out of the 24 schools I applied to, only two or three had a requirement that all sections be a 125 or above. I can't remember which ones but the vast majority did not have any restriction on 125

I think it's the most inconsistent section. I want to roam through the reported practice scores/real MCATS and quantify that someday.
