Do these classes count as BCPM?

Do classes in an Ecology and Evolutionary department count as BCPM. At my school, the biology classes are divided into MCDB (molecular, cellular, developmental biology) and E&EB (ecology and evolutionary biology), so no classes are listed in the "Biology" department per se--bio classes are either listed as MCDB or EEB. In this case, would the ecology/evolutionary classes be counted towards BCPM?

Thanks for any input.

If the content is 50% biology then list it as BCPM. Ultimately AMCAS will decide. You can appeal if you don't like their decision, but ultimately it rests with them.

I would consider both departments "biology" departments in that case, but as pbpm said above, if in doubt just go by the course content.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but has anyone taken neuroscience courses? Based on previous posts I would guess that they would count for BCPM, but I was curious if anyone had any experience with that specific type of class.

I think neuroscience departments are becoming more common.
 
Does AMCAS tell us our overall and BCMP GPA at some point after the primary has been sent?

In general, a true neuroscience course counts in the BCPM GPA. My school has a biological basis of behavior major that is a mix of neuroscience, psychology and biology and AMCAS recognized the course I took in this major as part of the BCPM. The title of the course was "Visual Neuroscience." I hope this helps! :rolleyes:

You will have access to your overall and BCPM GPA after your primary has been verified.
 
You will see how they list stuff and you will have a chance to appeal a description, but you will have to have proof such as a faculty member's signature/affirmation.

I just looked up how they list stuff. When do you find out if they don't count the class. Would I just notice that the BCPM I calculated is different than what my application says or do they notify you that they switched a class from science to non-science.

I ask because I took Environmental Biology. I want to list it as science because we only talked about the effects ecosystems/individuals experience due to environmental factors. We did not discuss policy much.
 
There shouldn't be that many courses in question. If there is and your GPA is different than your calculation, then AMCAS has a phone #. Utilize it :)
