    I was just wondering what a competitive science gpa was? I also would like to know if my intro to chem. Class counts towards it because it was not a pre requisite.

    I have a pretty competitive Sci GPA... apparently on average, sci GPA tends to be lower than non sci... also, it depends on the school. For WashU, you need a 4.0:eek:

    Any Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math class counts towards your science GPA. Phosphoric Chemistry, Calculus III, Vertebrate Zoology, all these classes count because they fit into the BCPM classes.

    A competitive science GPA? 3.6 I'd say is pretty good. A very good overall GPA is 3.7 to 3.8. Science GPA would be just a little below, but not much more.
