    I took basic sciences as a postbac/premedical student. (I did take some math classes as an undergraduate) When my file is put in front of the admissions committe, which GPAs will they look at and value the most?

    1. Postbac Science GPA
    2. Postbac Non-science GPA
    3. Undergraduate Science GPA
    4. Undergraduate Non-science GPA
    5. Other suggestions?

    Your opinion, please.

    Your overall undergrad GPA, which is your original undergrad classes plus post-bacc classes... probably followed by your post-bacc GPA. But the overall together is what will count the most

    Actually, I think they're a little more strict with the post-bacc GPA, especially if you're taking a reduced courseload. A 3.7 in undergrad is great, but a 3.7 in post-bacc while taking only two classes per semester looks bad.
