Can anyone clarify whether courses classified under "other science" such as epidemiology/astronomy are included in the bcpm gpa for TMDAS?

No. That's the whole point of them listing them as "other science."

I don't see why they do not lump other-science with non-science. I read through the app and it seems like they only consider cGPA and bcpmGPA.

The only reason I could think of is that they don't want to us to get LoRs from other-science for the non-science letter requirement. I wonder if I could just feign ignorance!

Because "other science" courses are still science. They should clarify it to be non-BCPM or do what AMCAS does and clearly denote the courses that are BCPM.
