Thanks for the response! 
Is this stated somewhere that I am just not seeing? Or common knowledge some how?
And is it consensus that this is the only MCAT "score" that matters to UofA Admissions?

Thanks!

I can’t recall if it is stated somewhere but I think when you are filling out an application and enter your MCAT it does show you that your score is the average of all sections, ie my score is always shown as 129.5 instead of 518 when I have received my feedback letters. And I can’t say 100% since they don’t specify their criteria for selection but I’m very confident that this is the only score that matters since they average all scores and don’t stress specific section scores (aside from the minimum cut offs), but if someone knows something I don’t feel free to correct me!
