    It is as it's name would imply, and includes all the natural science courses you've taken. Plus anyways, a lot of schools don't specify a particular course as a requirement but state that you need to have an upper level bio, so it'd be pretty hard to make a "pre-med" AMCAS GPA.

    So, don't bomb all your other courses lol.

    No, it actually includes any science class, and math. It is more affectionately termed "BCPM GPA" to mean Bio, Chem, Physics, Math. That is a little more clear.
