i was just wondering, do you know if A's are valued in certain pre-req's more so than others? (of gen chem, bio, orgo and physics) ?

BCPM is the most important thing, but i think it varies from school to school in regards to the courses they look at most heavily.

Categorically, I doubt there's any preference. But if a certain adcom happens to think that physics is more difficult / a better show of premed dexterity than gen. chem, your As could look more impressive in one class over another.

As a rule, I wouldn't worry about it though.

Nope. By and large, they're going to notice your overall and BCPM GPA a lot more than any individual grade.
