I think they just fall into the science GPA. BCP is for like basic pre-reqs like intro bio, chem, and physics. the upper divs fall under science GPA.
Any class that is offered by your biology, chemistry, or physics departments will be calculated into your BCP, not just the basic ones. When you enter your grades into AADSAS you select whether your class was biology, chemistry, physics, other science, or non-science. All of this gets verified once you send in your transcripts. I would GUESS that you could include your micro as a biology class and your biochem as a chemistry class.
Any kinda chemistry like Biochem, Ochem, Pchem, etc ---> Chemistry...
Any kinda biology like Micro, plant, animal, anatomy, physio ---> Biology...
All these fall into BCP...
And other Science includes nutrition, math, etc...
Yeah, I was under the impression that all biology, chemistry, and physics class (including upper division classes) are included in the BCP GPA. And the science GPA includes all those classes and math. Does anyone know for sure?
I can't believe they don't count Physical Chemistry as Chemistry. It's offered by my school's Chemistry department, and, unsurprisingly, it's pure chemistry.
Who said P-chem doesn't count? If it is offered by your schools chemistry department, it is counted as a chemistry class on AADSAS.

On page 21, Physical Chemistry is not listed under the Chemistry section for BCP. Physical Sciences, however, is listed under "Other Science."
Taken from that manual:

Chemistry for Engineering Majors (offered through engineering programs)..
To help you out, here is the definition of an example taken from dictionary.com:
example - one of a number of things, or a part of something, taken to show the character of the whole: This painting is an example of his early work.
If a class is offered by your chemistry department, it is a chemistry class to be included in your BCP. If your Biology department has a 1 credit professional school prep class that you take, it is included in your BCP because it is, for all intents and purposes, a biology class.
