I'm CANADIAN, would i need to release my MCAT scores to USMD/DO if I rewrite?
Hey everyone! So my current MCAT is a 509 (with a 124 in CARS) which is reallyyyyy bad since I'm Canadian. I think my overall score is fine for a few USMD and most USDO. If I submit my USMD and USDO applications in June/July, and rewrite the MCAT in August/September, would I HAVE TO release the latest MCAT score to the american schools? I'm scared that I might do worse than a 509 and I don't want american schools seeing it LOL Thank you soo much in advance, really appreciate it! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

I'm scheduled to take it on June 19th but I want to submit my application ASAP. I applied to most schools in New York but I'm having real trouble figuring out what other schools I should apply to and which ones I should remove (especially considering my lackluster research/ECs in general). I'm open to schools pretty much anywhere in the U.S. and I'm planning on... School list for someone with little research and no MCAT? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
