    i remembered reading it somewhere that do schools don't count your failed classes if you have retaken them?

    is it true? i had Ds last fall, i want to retake them this fall. I am just wondering if i should apply for next fall, or should I wait for another year? I have done all the rest of the classes. I don't really want to wait.

    any suggestions?

    You have to list every class on your transcript exactly how it appears, the same for accomas and amcas. I would say that is not true at all. You can however use your highest MCAT

    About the grades...AAMCAS uses all of your grades....

    AACOMAS shows all of them...but computes the higher grades(really improves your numbers)

    The last post is correct, all the grades are listed, but the higher one is used in the GPA.
