    I have attended 6 different schools since I've been in college. I was under 18 when I started, so I was originally subject to living wherever my mother lived. I moved out, and now I'm going to school where I want to go to school.

    I am 3 semesters from graduating at my final university (I have no intentions of leaving now that I'm 18). My last semester was a little rough, and my semester (and therefore average at this university) was a 3.0. However, when all my transfer credits are calculated, my GPA is actually a 3.5. I'm assuming that med schools will calculate my GPA by looking at all my grades from all my transcripts, instead of the GPA at my current university (which should only rise, but even so). Am I correct in my assumption? ... it would be a shame to have wasted all those years of work to get to a 3.5 and not have it show up.

    every class you have ever gotten college credit for will be counted.
