When I began undergrad, I was told that any courses that I took from community colleges would only transfer in as credits and would not effect my GPA. That is true, they did not effect my GPA on my transcript, however after applying to medical school I realized that they would be incorporated into my AMCAS GPA. I'm so upset because I graduated with a 3.90 at my university but with the community college courses and abroad courses, I now have a 3.79. Will medical schools take into account that I received B's from the community colleges and abroad (in non science courses) and not at my home university? From my home university transcript, I have all A's, 3 A-'s, and one B. But my abroad/community college grades added 5 B's and 1 B-. My science GPA is a 3.89.

With that GPA, generally no. It depends on the policies of specific schools. Some schools weigh the rigor of the academic institution differently, but in the grand scheme of things, it's relatively unimportant.
