Is it favorable to have a higher science gpa than an overall gpa?

    Long story short, I couldn't take the science courses I wanted to take in community college and resorted to finish my general education classes there, being a freshman and sophomore there, I messed around and managed to get a 3.0 overall and transferred out. Now I'm currently taking about 13 units of all BCP courses every semester which puts me at much higher gpa, thus my projected science gpa by matriculation will be around a 3.4-3.6 while my overall gpa would be around a 3.1-3.3. Is this seen as favorable because of the strong upward trend? Any feedback is appreciated.

    If the average upward trend is like a 3.6+ then I think you should be okay. As long as you aren't going from a 3.8 to a 2.8 you are good.
