    Hi everyone,
    I am starting my Master's in Public Health in the fall of this year in epidemiology. I plan to apply to medical school next summer. Due to my science grades being low one semester, my BCPM gpa is not as high as I would like. I wanted to take some courses along with my Master's classes to raise my BCPM gpa. However, I'm not sure where my Master's classes will fall into. I know that public health courses are classified as health sciences, but what about classes like Biostatistics or Genetics in Epidemiology? Can classes like those that are designated as 'public health' be classified as BCPM? I want to know if any of my classes will help in my attempt to raise my GPA, or if I need to take a ton of undergraduate level classes...Any insight is much appreciated!
    Thanks!

    All classes you take for your masters will all count as graduate level classes and will be irrelevant in calculating and/or raising your undergraduate science gpa.

    also, taking classes at the same university you are doing your mph may still count towards your grad gpa on amcas b/c it may be still seen as courses taken towards a formal graduate degree. check the amcas manual.

    Thanks...I totally forgot that its only undergraduate classes...I'll be sure to look into it...I hope it won't be a problem, since my graduate school is the same as my undergraduate...Thanks again!
