I know Stanford only takes into account your sciene GPA. Do any other schools do this? Normally, which GPA is given more weight, the overall GPA or the science GPA?

From what I've gathered, i think that science gpa is the more important of the two, but i think most schools take both gpas into account. I'm not sure exactly which ones follow which policy, but i'd assume that in nearly all cases the science gpa is more useful to the medical school and therefore more heavily weighted.
