    Hey everyone,
    I was working on my AADSAS app lately and noticed when adding a course, the course had to be categorized under bio/chem/phy/engl/other sci/non-sci etc. Which made me wonder....
    Do the schools care about sGPA or just the overall GPA? I know in Canada, most schools only care about overall GPA, but the way AADSAS groups courses makes me wonder if how important sGPA is for US dental schools.
    On a totally unrelated note, is anyone losing sleep lately? I'm SO stressed :(

    edit: sorry put the wrong title. can't edit the title.

    Yeah. Apparently schools like to look at several different GPAs, which is why AADSAS categorizes it into BCP, science, non-science and overall.

    However, when looking at some school websites they will give you in-coming class statistics which tell you the overall and science GPAs. Don't know exactly what each individual school looks at, but my guess is all the different calculated GPAs.
