    does anyone have any idea how the aacomas gpa is calculated? basically the big question for me is that are math and stats classes included? or is aacomas gpa just like amcas's BCPM ( bio, chem, math, physics)I've heard two different explanations.... the guys at pcom said, they include math... while some people here say math's not included..and that the aacomas has a seperate section for math.... Does anyone really really know the REAL DEAL?

    thanks :cool:

    Heck ya they include math in your GPA. Who told you math wasn't include? They're tripping!!!....

    I think you might have misunderstood some of the explanations. AACOMAS has a few different subject designations. Meaning, there's more than just Bio, Chem, Math, Phys, and other... There other designations such as Behavioral Science, Humanities, etc....

    Here's the link to the AACOM website with the instruction to the application... You may want to glance at it.

    You need Acrobat reader.... If this doesn't work go visit the AACOM website at www.aacom.org and click on students then click on application. Hope that helps...
