Hi all, I am graduating from a very good Candian School this year in a program akin to pre-med. I am attending the Columbia Institute of Nutrition masters program nextyear which I am excited about, however I want to apply to med school this year soafter I'm done the 1 yr program I can go straight in. Question: when American schools look at 'GPA' (which I have no idea how AMCAS calculates) do medical schoolslook at all years equally? In Canada they definitely do not. My freshman and soph year were very medicore - then a HUGE upward trend. Does this help my chances? Solid extra curriculars + MCAT p-10 V-12 B-11 W-R. THANKS for your input!!
