    quality points? do you mean one that incorporates the +/- and one without?? that's the only two ways they calculate your gpa. and dental schools will look at both i assume..

    "GPA" is with +/- considered
    "GPA w/o" is without considering +/-

    Every school differs at which they care more about, but if they are similar it won't matter...it's when there is a huge difference, like 3.6 vs. 3.35 that they might question something.
