For someone with a reported 44 MCAT, I'm surprised you're asking this question.

Additionally, there is no difference between the two groups in your question. Your overall GPA would include both science and non-science courses.

But they look at everything.

kidding about the 44, changed it to 3, either way both scores are outrageously unlikely,

so they look at 3 different GPA's right?

They consider your science GPA and your overall GPA. The non-science GPA is a little unneccesary since it is factored into the overall GPA and obviously med schools care more about your ability in science classes since medicine is science.
