My application was verified and noticed that the EMT-B class in this spring semester. I got a B in the class which brought my cGPA from a 3.63 to a 3.60 cGPA because it was worth 8 credits. I took this class after graduation to gain more health care experience but never worked as an emt. My verified application says a post baccalaureate GPA of 3.0. Would this look bad on my application? How bad did I mess up??

That makes feel a lot better! It was a class at a community college so they gave grades with official transcripts I needed to send to AMCAS.

Wouldn't worry about it, should be clear that this was just a single EMT class, not a true postbacc.

Also is it normal for EMT to get a letter grade? I thought it was sort of a pass/fail certification thing
Taken for credit they will give a class letter grade in addition to the P/F nature of the certification exam. I would say the large majority of EMT-B takers are not concerned with the college transcript part of things, and many are administered by state instructors in a community setting rather than at a college/university.

interesting. I took my EMT course through my college for P/F credit, there was no graded option available. (technically it was hosted by a nearby community college, but on our campus, with only our students, and no separate transcripts, so I think that was mostly a paperwork thing for the state)

I received a B in EMT for 8 credits also but back in 2007. Its done and in the past now no reason to worry about something you cannot control. The good thing is your cGPA is still totally fine.
