yeah I'm wondering the same exact thing, bc technically the pre-reqs for pod schools doesn't include any math at all...so does the bcpm thing come into play?

Q: How are the AACPMAS GPAs calculated?
A: AACPMAS will calculate numerous GPAs. The GPAs and hours will be summarized by academic year within undergraduate (freshman through senior year), post-baccalaureate and graduate work. There will be a running total GPA for each academic year that will add all coursework together for an overall total GPA. For example, if you have taken several courses after your bachelor's degree but not for a graduate degree, these courses would be listed as post-baccalaureate courses and would be added to your overall GPA, but would still have a separate post-baccalaureate GPA. This would also be true for graduate work. In addition, courses will be divided into a Science and Non-Science category for each year and will have a running total through the post-baccalaureate and graduate work.
In addition to your Total GPA, AACPMAS calculates Science and Non-Science GPAs.
Your Science GPA is calculated based on these courses:
Math and Statistics
Your Non-Science GPA is calculated based on these courses:

I will be applying next cycle and have a questions about GPAs
If you took summer classes, what Year is that considered if on the app it makes you break down the gpas for each academic year.
I just took two summer classes (both physics) and am not sure if when I have to calculate gpa if they should be inputted into soph. or junior year.

Freshman = less than 30 credit hours taken
Sophomore = 30 - 59 credit hours taken
Junior = 60 - 89 credit hours taken
Senior = greater than 90 credit hours taken
For example: When I took my 3 credit biochem class over the summer, I was at 57 credits which made me a sophomore when I took it. The next fall semester, since I was at 60 credits, I was officially a junior.
Also here is a link to the AACPMAS Course subject directly:

Thanks, so my feeling is that when the time comes you have to calculate total, science, and non-science GPA for EACH academic year as far as overall for each category? And if you had completed courses before starting college with letter grades they would most likely be placed in the freshman category, right?

I don't see anything by the semesters that is for calculating a GPA. I was under the impression that once AACPMAS recieved your transcripts, then your GPA's would appear in the "GPA Calculations" section under the "Status" box on the main page. I'm not sure they want us calculating our own GPA's. I'm not positive though, please correct me if I'm wrong.
