    I know that both the overall gpa and the science gpa are important, but which gpa does NYCPM focus on?

    I'm not an expert, but I would think that they look at both pretty evenly.

    Science GPA is important for obvious reasons but overall is important too because it shows them how well you do in something you enjoy (your major).

    Thats why we all pick certain majors, because we enjoy the subject. Right?

    NYCPM says:
    So just shoot for above 3.0 and I think you'll be fine.

    From NYCPM (

    "The profile of the average incoming first year student has a 3.2 GPA and an overall MCAT score of 21. To be most competitive, you should possess a science and overall GPA over 3.0, on a 4.0 scale. It is recommended that candidates with less than a 2.75 grade point average consult the Office of Admissions prior to applying. "

    ...If you also take a look at the statistics from AACPM's website it will show you how many students applied & matriculated at NYCPM. I don't know if that will give you some confidence to apply. Good luck!
