Hi all,

I just have a quick question regarding when to submit my MCAT scores. Should I wait till my retake score comes in August 4th to send in all my scores at once or should I send my old one now and then the new one when it comes in. My old score is a 501 and I am afraid DO and TX schools won't even look at my application because the score is so low. Thanks for all your help!
MCAT scores are automatically incorporated into your application. You don't have to do anything to submit those scores usually.

It you use your old score you will get screened out accordingly. Med schools are not obligated to wait for anew score.

Thus, do NOT apply until you have your new score in hand.

Wait to apply until you can put your best application forward. You will be screened out before you even have a chance to send in your new score if you submit your 501.
