Members don't see this ad.
Is it true that when repeating a course, only the last coure grade recieved is considered and calculated into the AACOMAS GPA? However, repeated courses are averaged for the AMCAS GPA?

Also, does a post-bacc program affect the undergrad GPA in the AACOMAS or AMCAS application? How are those GPAs dealt?

Thanks! ;)

I am curious too. I have always assumed that all undergraduate courses (including post bacc undergrad) are included in the gpa and averaged even if there are repeats. I have applied to amcas in the past and this is how it is done. However, I am not sure about aacomas. I would like to know because I am applying d.o. as well this year:)
