    Do medical schools include college courses taken as a high school student when calculating GPA? I have taken a college course (not AP) when I was a junior and I got a B- in the class... If they include this grade when calculating my GPA, how many grade points would B- be worth? 3.0 or 2.8? and do they take into account how many semester credit hours it was?

    I have taken this same course again in college and got a solid A but there's no way I can replace this grade with a B- lol
    so on my transcript, it says I have taken it back in 2003 and got a B- but it also says I have taken it again in 2006 and got an A
    but this B- is going to lower my GPA down by 0.3~0.4 anyway :( so sad

    I do hope you mean 0.03-0.04. If not, you must have like 12 credits total.

    yeah I was talking about one semester's GPA (17 credits)
    the school I went to included B- because I took it on their campus
    and I only spent one semester at this school

    I transfered to a different school and I started with a new GPA
