Hello,
I will be applying to all Texas schools (if that matters) and am wonder if a class would count towards BCPM. It is a nutrition class course listed in biology.
The course description states, "May not be used for biology grade point calculation or biology credit toward a BS degree in biology, microbiology, or medical technology."
The TMDAS website says that "Courses for non-science majors or for health career majors (nursing, pharmacy, allied health sciences, etc.) will NOT satisfy the required coursework. All required coursework must be applicable towards a traditional science degree."
So will this class count, yay or nay?

I believe nay. Anything that is considered a "health science" class typically does not count toward BCPM.

I was a nutrition minor and none of my nutrition classes count towards my science/BCPM gpa in AMCAS.

I would think it counts, if it's listed as a Bio dept. course on your transcript. I had a sports med class listed as such and AMCAS accepted it.

No need to share the more damning description, if possible.
