I have less than stellar overall and science GPAs. I have some repeat courses in undergrad. It's been 5 years since I graduated--I hope this plays in my favor. I plan on taking post-bac and repeating some of those courses I did poorly in. I read here and there on SDN that DO schools take the most recent grades. I wasn't really sure, I couldn't find that on AACOMAS myself. I decide to investigate. I call two schools, spoke to an admission's counselor, pretended that I was currently taking post-bac and repeating courses to enhance undergrad performance, and they said they average the grades. The Chicago school said per AACOMAS they average the grades. I call AACOMAS up. Customer rep on AACOMAS said they take the most recent grades. The school still sees your bad grades, but AACOMAS takes the most recent/repeat grades and factors that in. The repeat grades will show up as repeats. The rep informed where I could find that on their site. I then informed the rep that the Chicago school told me AACOMAS average the grades and thus do the schools then make up their own decisions after they get the records from AACOMAS. --- links Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (Western U/COMP), Pomona, CA http://www.aacom.org/colleges/western.asp Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine of Midwestern University (CCOM), Downers Grove, IL, 25 miles west of Chicago http://www.aacom.org/colleges/ccom.asp https://aacomas.aacom.org/ by telephone 301-968-4190.
