Hello all, I have heard that a good amount of MD schools do preliminary screenings based solely on GPA and MCAT. First, I would like to know if it is overall GPA or just BCPM gpa? Second, as such, I would like to know GPA-wise, do they screen only the pre-requisites or the overall BCPM GPA including upper-level science courses? I have heard one such person state that a school (I don't know which) screens only an applicant's pre-requisite BCPM GPA and doesn't give any regards to upper level science courses, although I am not sure if this is true. For example, lets say person 1 and 2 both have the exact same BCPM, aka 3.60. However, person 1 has 2 C's in his pre-reqs BUT has 2 A's in upper level science courses to counterbalance the 2 C's, while person 2 just has B's in pretty much the same courses and still wound up w/ the same BCPM has person 1. Would both be regarded the same in a GPA screening, or would person 2 be looked more favorably? Thanks for any responses!
