Hey guys,

Reflecting on my marks from freshman and sophomore year it is obvious that I don't perform well in non science courses.

Freshman:
cumGPA: 3.90
sGPA: 4.00
aoGPA: 3.79

Sophomore:
cumGPA: 3.80
sGPA: 4.00
aoGPA: 3.60

My question is, what GPA do y'all think the ADCOMS look upon most favorably?
I'm aware that the AMCAS gives these same numbers for each year of undergrad.

Also, when looking at historical figures, what GPA are they getting to factor in with MCAT to give a % acceptance rate?
The cumGPA would be most logical I guess. Do y'all know?
Thanks.

:lame:

3.79 and 3.6 is not performing well?

ADCOMs focus on your cGPA and sGPA, not your aoGPA.
cGPA is used with MCAT scores in historical figures.

Thank you for your input everyone!

I know GPA isn't everything but thank goodness for only one more core requirement left!
I'm just not interested in the arts!

As long as you're averaging an A (>3.5) it's fine. The higher the better. ADCOMs look at your cGPA first, if they care to look more they will look at your sGPA and trends in grades over your time in college. They will probably never care about your aoGPA unless it's atrocious.

I received B's in U.S History and a Perspectives course. A+ in all chemistry and biology thus far though! You are right though #SDN. I'm a bit of a gunner.

Wow, SDN is SO helpful!

Thank you everyone for replying.
Who needs an adviser when you have SDN!?
