I know anthropology classes do not count towards BCPM, but would a class called biological anthropology be can exception? Here is the course description:[FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1][FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1]

Human biological evolution, including the biology of contemporary human groups, non-human primate social behavior, and the fossil, biochemical, and molecular evidence for human evolution. Includes a laboratory study of human population genetics, biochemical variation, and anatomical diversity in modern and fossil human and non-human primate groups[/SIZE].[/SIZE].

Is it offered by the Bio department or the Anthro department?

If it is offered by Bio....then it will probably go into your Bio GPA. If not, you can make a case for it but ultimately it will be up to AAMC. They may fix it when they verify your app if you classify it wrong.
