for example, will both GPA 3.75 and 3.79 be classified as 3.8?

A 3.97 doesn't round to a 4.0

Or at this point take 6 classes to get it to move 0.001.

3.799 will be 3.80, but 3.794 will be 3.79.

As with most things, it's somewhere in the middle.

OP, I'm pretty sure AMCAS just uses the floor function when calculating your GPA. So a 3.99 would turn into a 3.0 on AMCAS. Yeah, it's a pretty unforgiving system. Pretty much gotta get a 4.0 to be safe.
