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.

You'll be fine. CARS gets cut the most slack.

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.
