I have an extremely low GPA but this was remedied by having strong grades for my last 120 credit hours (~3.7). I’m curious to know what GPA does...

    GPA calculations

    So I see on two different AADSAS pdf files different ways to calculate your gpa. One says an A+ is a 4.33 and the other doesn't account for A+'s. Which one is correct?

    Do DO schools look at transcript GPA?

    Hey guys, So my AACOMAS cGPA and sGPA are substantially higher than my transcript GPAs. Will schools be looking at my transcript GPA? If they just take my AACOMAS GPA into account, I'm pretty much a shoe-in for most DO schools. However, I feel that my transcript GPA is so low it may look bad...

    3.0 GPA, 57 Credits so Far. How high can I raise GPA?

    A 3.0 GPA seems low for med school admission, so if I were to work hard, how high could I raise it? If I add a minor (18 credit hours more) could it help my chances to raise my GPA? Also, I do volunteer at a free clinic, I'm in research studying Parkinson's, what else could I do to dramatically...

    Do these count as BCPs??

    Would these classes be considered BCPs? I think most of them should be, but I'm not positive about all of them. 1. Human Brain & Disease-we learned about brain disorders, neurophysiology, and neuroanatomy 2. Neurobiology 3. Psychobiology-technically a psychology-department class, but we learned...

    GPA scale

    I was looking up how the AMCAS does grade conversion and I'm not sure which grading system type I'd follow. The AMCAS has grades with +/-, half-step (AB, BC, etc), and ones without any +/-. My university doesn't give out -, so the point scaling is off for the +/- category (making my gpa lower...

    BCPM: What counts as math?

    Would Discrete Math I and II count as "math" under BCPM? I'm finishing up my math minor and would prefer to take those courses to complete the minor, as I am extremely interested in Discrete. I would prefer for them to count toward by BCPM gpa (would like the boost if I do well in them :))

    Does anyone know exactly how AADSAS averages retakes?

    When I started school in 2010, I got 3 C's (9 credits total). I figured things out and have averaged a 3.9 ever since (about 110 credits later). I retook those classes and got A's. At my university, a retaken class replaces the first grade, so my GPA is pretty high, but I know that AADSAS does...

    GPA calculations for AP credit

    I do not need to fill any med school requirements with my AP classes. However, my school placed my AP classes on my transcript with grades of CR based on a credit/no credit grading system.
