    My school does not use A- but we do have B+ which factors in as 3.5 in your gpa. I saw some medical schools use 3.3 for a B+ however and a 3.7 for A-. Will schools take into account that we have no A- and thus use a 3.5 for a B+ or will they use 3.3 anyways? Thanks!

    The GPA reported to schools is your AMCAS gpa. Here is a link to the page where you can read all about the AMCAS GPA and it has a grade conversion sheet at the end that is very helpful. look for the grading scale that your school uses to determine what your grade would be.
