So I was recalculating my BCPM GPA last night, and I didn't know what to do with a class called "CS 124: Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science." This class is basically a course in "discrete math" / discrete structures; it deals with probability, permutations, proofing, big O notation, automata, and other theoretical stuff. I got a crappy grade (C), so I prefer to exclude this class from my BCPM GPA. I'm just worried AMCAS will see "Mathematical" in the course title during verification, and make me classify it as BCPM.

However, I would argue that it's non-BCPM since it is technically a CS class offered by the CS department (and does not carry a MATH dept. designation in the course name).

TLDR; Can I get away with classifying this class as CS, non-BCPM?

Yes, you can probably count it as either one. I didn't have a problem with some of my engineering classes going either way

yea I'd classify it as a CS class from your description

That will likely be okay to go as CS. I had a nursing course (nursing prefix) that was put into my BCPM. If they disagree, they just change it so you're fine.
