Which is more important to medical schools, science GPA or overall GPA? It seems like people mostly discuss their Overall GPA, but I'm wondering how much weight it carries vs. Science GPA. One reason I'm wondering: In one thread there was a ~2001 Stanford Med document detailing the ten criteria that they used in their computer sorting model (with different weights assigned to each): 1. MCAT BS 2. MCAT VR 3. MCAT PS 4. Science GPA 5. Quality of School 6. Age 7. Sex 8. Disadvantaged Consideration 9. URM Consideration 10. Graduate School The top 1/3 got supplimental app. The bottom 1/3 got rejected. The middle 1/3 had a staff assessment. I definitely noticed that they used SCIENCE GPA not overall GPA in this model. How do different schools weigh the various parts of the GPA breakdown?
