Ok people, I'm new to this board, and to applying to med school (sophomore in college) so sorry if my questions might seem stupid. Could someone please explain how AMCAS calculates GPAs? From what I understand, medical schools don?t get transcripts directly from colleges, but through AMCAS. If this is the case, do they even recalculate GPAs? At my school A=4.0, A-=3.7, etc. Are these the numbers AMCAS also uses? Also, when people talk about science GPA is it just for required science courses, or does it include any science course taken in college. Thanks.
