    On the AMCAS, what does BCPM stand for with regards to GPA?

    The fun part comes when you try to guess which classes fit into which catagory.

    does anyone know when some schools screen, do they/or do you think they look at the yearly BCPM and yearly overall GPA, or just the overall numbers? i'm not applying till next june, so i am not sure what the format is.

    I think, though I may be wrong but I think they get a break down of your science GPA, non-science and then the overall. At least that is how it is on the AMCAS application. It is also broken down by years in school.
