    I have taken the MCAT once and did not do well. Have been preparing to take it July 12th. I want to apply June 3rd as to assure my application gets sent early. However, my new MCAT score will not be released until mid August. The reason for submitting application June 3rd is because I am aware it takes 4-6 weeks for the application to be processed and I want to send my application early.
    If there is not MCAT score present, I have heard schools will wait to review application until that score comes in.

    However, since I have a previous MCAT score, will my application be processed in such a way that schools can review and begin to make decisions based off my first MCAT score? I would like them to wait for my new score, but I do not know if my old score will be present for them to view.

    Am I safer to just wait and send in my application when my July 12th MCAT score is released?

    Thanks in advance

    Your old score will be there and schools have no obligation to wait for a new score

    They can see all your scores, you can select that you have a future mcat date schedule which means they will normally wait until that test date's results come in to review your application.
