    Now, according to adea website math is calculated into your science gpa. I am an engineering major and wonder if this is really true or not, b/c I have seen some posts on this site that the adea only reports the science gpa as the (BCP) gpa including biology, chemistry, and physics hence (BCP). I am just really curious of how adea reports the gpa's on the application.

    Can someone who has filled out an application explain to me which gpa's are reported and how they are reported and calculated. One reason why I am so worried about this is I have a 3.72 BCP gpa, but if you include all of the maths that I have taken then it knooks it down to a 3.17 gpa. Big difference this is a make or break me type of deal. Any helpful input will be appreciated. Thanks

    Once ADEA finishes updating and verifying your application then what is a break down of all the gpa's that they reported on your application (ex. BCP, BCP+Math, Overall, etc...)?

    So I guess this means when you state your science gpa to schools then it includes (Science = BCP+Math) not just BCP?

    Right or wrong?

    Also, same thing applies when you are stating your science gpa on your predents page. I am assuming this also is the BCP+Math gpa.

    Math is counted in Science GPA, not BCP, both are represented fairly equally on your aadsas, so they will see that you are strong at science and weaker at math... how the school takes that info i couldnt tell ya tho

    After Next semester I anticipate on having around 3.5 BCP but my Sci will be 3.1. Does this make me alot less competetive? I'm wondering with my DAT if I could get a few interviews.
