Ok I only get enough to take 12 credits a semester my problem is one of the bio classes I wanted to take didn't come with a lab. So I'm at 11 credits with gentics and lab and bio 2 and cell biology which will count towards my pre-med GPA since it doesn't come with a lab it's going to count as an elective instead of going towards my degree so should I take a language class just to get 4 cr i really don't care to take this class or should i take normal nutrtion which is 4 cr but which will also be an elective but won't count towards my pre-med GPA. I just don't want to waste money and take classes that will be all electives and not count for anything:confused:

I'm not sure what you mean by "pre-med GPA". Are you referring to your BCPM?

Be aware that med schools will see every grade for every class you take post-HS or GED.

They will calculate two GPAs your cumulative GPA and your BCPM GPA.

Plus, most med schools want to see a well rounded course history. So doing well in humanities, history, etc. is important too.
