    I finished early in 3 years. this upcoming year as i'm applying to schools i'm going to be taking classes for fun at my state school. will these classes (say, i don't get in this cycle and thus would obviously want a higher gpa) be calculated into my current undergrad gpa by AMCAS? i mean, technically, this upcoming year would be my "senior year" since it'll be my 4th year at an undergrad institution. i'll just have finished my actual degree in 3 years at my current school. i know these extra classes would be considered postbacc....

    so anyways, just answer the question in the title. thanks

    Sort of. There is a category on AMCAS that combines ug and ug postbac. That is what med schools will look at for your GPA.

    yes they are ugrad

    edit to clarify: they will seperated by a post-bacc gpa but will be calculated into your overall and BCPM ugrad gpa.
