    I haven't gotten my scores back yet, but I was wondering how med schools look at scores. Is it like the SAT where they take the highest scores from all the times you've taken the MCAT or what?

    It depends on the school. Some schools take your most recent score no matter what. Some schools take the highest score... and I think a few take a composite of your highest scores in each section.

    Many average, some take the lowest, some the highest, some the most recent. No matter what...it's not a good thing. Shouldn't stop you from applying, however.
