The school i go to uses a 4.0, 3.9, 3.7, 3.6..etc grade system. for example my physics class required a 98-100% to get a 4.0, 96-97% 3.9..etc and I have a lot of science courses in the 3.6-3.8 range, which on the AMCAS conversion sheet for my school, it converts to an A- .I am clueless as to if this is a concern or not as i have many classes with A- as listed below.

The following are my courses with their respective grades which all convert to an A- based on AMCAS conversion chart
Orgo 1 (3.8 A-)
Orgo 2 (3.6 A-)
Physics 1 (3.8 A-)
physics 1 lab (3.8 A-)
bio 2 (plant bio) (3.6 A-)
bio lab (3.7 A-)
Calculus 1 (3.6 A-)
Human Evolution (3.6 A-)
------
chem lab (3.3 B+)
Human physiology (3.4 B+)
-----
None science courses:
cinema (3.7 A-)

My university GPA is 3.77 and science GPA is 3.78, not sure if it will be rounded up or down by AMCAS when everything is entered into the formula sheet



In regards to my other courses, I got a 4.0 in bio 1, chem 2, genetics, genetics lab, orgo lab, and i only have biochem and physics 2 + lab left of my pre med prequisties which im taking this fall. I am a bio major so i will be continuing to take higher level science courses for sure. For the record, I am extremely involved in extracurricular activities. No MCAT score yet.

Thank you for your input!

It's not what your school says your GPA is, it's what AMCAS says. And A-'s look like close to 4.0

So chill.

Looks like you are a "close enough" but not quite kind of person.
