    I sent every school an unofficial copy of my summer transcript noting that if they need an official, I will sent it over right away.

    I would be in the same boat.

    I am taking 13 credits and straight As.

    Did you guys also send a note saying what the new GPA and BCPM would be after including the summer grades?

    For my BCPM, it makes a difference of about .1 between summer not included and included.

    But I don't know how medical would look at this.
    Would they still consider my before-summer BCPM or would they give consideration to my after-summer BCPM?
    My before-summer BCPM is lower than that of my choice school,
    while, if included summer, it becomes about the same.



    Or should i just have waited for my summer to end and THEN complete application? Since it would be mid-august, i guess it's not late and not at disadvantage. I am kind of thinking this.

    Is it normal to send transcripts after your AMCAS has been calculated? I have never heard of this.

    I sent transcripts to most of my schools after the end of my summer sessions. I e-mailed Georgetown and U. of Cincinnati the grades because I had talked to them earlier this summer and they indicated that I didn't need to send them actual transcripts; e-mail was fine.
