On the website it says the overall GPA's of different schools

http://opted.org/pdf/Profile2007EnteringClass.pdf

What are the science GPA though? Do they look at all science? Only pre-req science? or overall GPA b/c that's what they post?

Thanks a lot everyone!
Most schools will look at a pre-req GPA carefully. At SCCO, there is a form where you fill in the pre-reqs and your grades for each.

Yeah...from what I've been noticing from the applications..most schools get you to fill in your pre-req marks and calculate your GPA for it. So they look at those pre-req courses carefully definately. And I think on top of that they look at overall GPA. So I think its mostly pre-req and then overall..but it might vary depending on the school.
