Thank you so much for this relief. I already dumped 2k today to send my application to the schools. And I only found out AFTER that a science Grad GPA exists. Im hoping they'll leave it as HEAL or if they don't I might contest it.Based on the AMCAS course classification guide it looks like your classes will not be classified as BCPM but HEAL. If they determine otherwise, you can contest it. Additionally, graduate GPA is listed as separate from undergraduate GPA so I wouldn’t worry as much.
That being said, how are you able to apply to medical school without earning a bachelors degree?
1) I see, I suppose that's good news
2) Okay cool, so maybe it will be then characterized as HEAL so that's more good news
3) I sort of figured this, since it's also most recent, even though I hear "grad gpa doesn't matter" I believe I would be (and ofc SMP's) are an exception
4) I wouldn't mind nonbcpm lowered, I'd rather want a 3.39 non-BCPM and not a 2.9 BCPM
5) Good question, so I had an upward trend, going from CC to PharmD it's not surprising did poorly in my first year. First semester I got a 2.4 all the way to a 3.4 cumulative now. The point to make it non BCPM is so I wouldn't be judged off that bat, I'd assume ADCOMs would see a 2.9 BCPM and toss my app. When in fact in the upcoming years with significantly harder clinical courses (that are not considered BCPM) I excelled in.
I do have a question for you, my MCAT is in August first, what's the minimum score I need for MD, as well do you believe I should do an SMP ?
