confused about AMCAS

I already registered with AMCAS. I then took additional science classes in a post-bacc program. I'd like these additional classes to be counted as part of my GPA (science and cumulative), so do I just send my new transcripts to AMCAS?
Or does AMCAS NOT accept additional transcripts once you've already registered with them? I did very well in my additional classes and hope AMCAS will re-calcullate my GPA to include them.
On AMCAS's website it says to send transcripts to the Med Schools directly if you take additional classes after your registration, but that worries me since the Medical Schools will not see my new and higher GPA. Has anyone had a similar experience?

for AMCAS 2004: the med schools will see your grades when you send them the new transcripts, and it is not too difficult to calculate a new gpa. dont worry about it. just get the transcripts to the schools.

for AMCAS 2005 (applying this summer, entering year of 2005): you have to fill out a whole new application. i dont think you can use your old one. so you wont have a problem then.
