    Hi, everyone,

    I was wondering if you any of you have come across this same issue in your applications.

    My undergraduate degree was from a few years ago. Since then, I have taken almost as many classes at the same university, same classification (undergraduate) under a chemistry degree in preparation for medical school. I assumed that, when I applied, the GPA on my application would reflect my overall university GPA (includes all coursework), since both are undergraduate.

    However, I was reading the AMCAS manual for entering coursework, and it states that any course work after the receipt of the initital BS/BA degree should be classified as PB (postbac). Is the PB not calculated in overall GPA then? I really hope it is, otherwise my chances are now shot all to heck. :(

    Thanks for your help?

    Try looking here. The post-bacc will be added into the overall number, and reported separately. You should get two numbers - ugrad GPA, post-bacc GPA.
