..how med schools count the GPA..

ok.. so after I graduated with a BA, I took some classes from the local tier 4 college. Two classes to be exact. theater and economics. just for the hell of it.

I wasn't too serious about them and didn't do too well. Not at all. So I've heard that apparently medical schools count ALL undergrad classes? Is that true of DO schools as well as MD schools?

thanks!!

Yes. Why did you take (and spend money) on these classes if you weren't serious about them? Adcom will be interested in that question as well.

yep, but if what you say is true, you only have 2 and you didn't do to well which means you did ok but not great, you should be fine reporting them. Unless of course you are hoping that the answer to the questions regarding these 2 classes could be broadly applied to many classes you have taken in which case you are screwed.
