    How does AMCAS decide which of an applicant's courses go into the BPCM? Obviously, biology, physics, chemistry, and math are included, but what about other science courses? I majored in astronomy and my transcripts list such courses as ASTRO XXX: Astrophysics of Star Systems, Astrophyscis of Stars, Solar System Astronomy, Spherical Astronomy, etc. These courses were all high-octane math and physics, and should probably be included. Anybody have an answer or personal experience in this matter? Thanks!

    well, according to amcas, astronomy is in the physics category so should be bpcm.

    I put my astronomy courses under the BCPM category last year and AMCAS did not have a problem with that.
