So i know the GPA's that are important are: bcpm, and cGPA (cumulative)

However it seems that bcpm are just the med school requirement classes. Intro bio, general + organic chemistry, physics and math. But what about upper division biology courses like Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiology, Evolution etc...

I'm asking because physics and ochem wrecked me. but my UD bio GPA is currently a 3.75. Bear in mind i still have a whole year of college to complete, and so far i have an upward trend. (more like a stagnant B-/C+ average for bcpm then A- average for UD bio)

So overall my cumulative GPA by the end might not look so strong, but my UD will look competent, but that won't matter if adcoms don't look at that...

Your science GPA (aka BCPM GPA) will include upper division sciences like genetics, physiology, neurobiology, etc.
