    If you got no changes on your app then perhaps you got a reprieve from AMCAS. I hope this is a glitch, and that you'll hear something in a few days. If not, and I were you, I would fear that AMCAS is screwing me behind the scenes. I have learned that any AMCAS glitch always brings bad news. :rolleyes:

    No changes at all. :confused:

    I tend to get really scared when AMCAS tells me they are going to change my GPA. Especially since I'm sure it's write cause it matches my undergrad record. Just when you though it was safe...
     
  6. ehem

    I think u meant

    I am sure it is "right" not write...

    hope u dont make those kind of "write" mistakes in ur secondaries ;) hehe

    That letter says something about quality points...what are they. I thought your GPA was straight up calculated using the normal plus and minus system? Does that mean that advanced courses are higher quality and count higher in the gpa? Im confused :eek: :confused:

    AMCAS doesn't always calculate your GPA the way your school does. Your AMCAS GPA is almost always different than your transcript GPA, especially if you have a repeat, or even some lab classes that are calculated differently.

    Here's a quick definition of quality points. You already know about them, but probably call them something else.

    Clas_____Hours_____Grade_____Q. Pts.
    BIO 100__3_________A_________12
    BIO 101__1_________B_________3

    TOTAL___4___________________15

    Quality Points / Total Hours = GPA

    15/4 = 3.75

    Hope that clears this up. :)

    (I had to use underscore to space things out right)
