- Pharmacy Student
To better compare you to the majority of applicants who have only done undergrad work, you will be judged primarily by uGPA. It sounds like it would be in your best interest for as many classes as possible to be assigned to FR, SO, JR, or SR year coursework, rather than GRAD. Fortunately for you, AMCAS prefers that you assign the educational level in the same way that it is listed on your official transcript. Hopefully, the transcript mirrors the status on your tuition bills. If AMCAS disagrees, they will reassign the status according to their own rules.Im in a six year pharmacy program in which the first two years are undergraduate classes and the next four are pharmacy school classes. However my 3rd and 4th years (1st and second professional years) are considered undergrad by rutgers university because we still pay the same tuition as the undergrad students.
So my question is, what gpa will med schools look at? Just the first two pre-req years, the four years, or all six? My advisor told me the med schools will just look at my pre-req years. I ask because I am doing better in pharmacy school than I did in my undergrad (unlike most of my classmates). Will med schools take that into account? Or do they only care about the pre-professional years?
