    Thanks to everyone who advised me before on my g.p.a. question. I've got another one.

    On the AAOMCAS application it does advise to list EVERY class you've ever taken. However, it allows you to list ONLY classes which count towards an undergrad degree IF your taking those classes in a Professional program. Specifically, it outlines my situation of being in a D.C. program and obtaining my undergrad degree from the same institution.

    Question: Is the PSAR...professional school academic record even taken into account?

    It appears not to be. But if the schools want to know your most RECENT efforts and if there is improvement then that is from the professional school record. It's a little late for me to change my undergrad G.P.A..

    IF it's NOT taken into account then the ONLY way to raise my academic record is to go back and take "remedial" science courses just for that purpose. Is that the way it's done? Seems kinda...well...stupid. Why should I go back and take Inorganic chemistry over to better my grade if I've already taken 2 advanced BIOCHEMISTRY courses?

    Let me know what you guys think. Basically, how to get that g.p.a. up without acting like I've never gone to school!
