If someone writes the MCAT multiple times which score is used in the admissions formula?

(ie. is it the highest score? the most recent score? or an average score?)

Thanks

It varies with each school, as it seems each one wants to seem like they have a unique method for selecting their students. But no matter what method they use, averaging, highest, or latest, it pays to do better if you repeat the exam.

Also, it does seem like a majority of the schools simply enter your latest into the data pool.
