    ok guys, quick question..
    i'm currently waitlisted at a few schools and still waiting to hear from another. by chance that i might have to re-apply i'm curious about calculation of science gpa. i was an engineering major and forced to take numerous math classes (calc 1, calc2, calc3, the list goes on and on), do i need to include these in my science gpa? these classes are nearly impossible to get A's in and i don't want them dragging down my science gpa like it did on this last AMCAS. can i only include calc 1 to fulfill the math credit? i would prefer to only have my chem, ochem, bio, and physics grades. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    I think you have to put them down as math - but i guess you could always try to put it down as something else (but then on verification, they'll probably move it back to math). Kinda sucks - but then again, all the chem/bio/physics majors who didn't do spectacularly on their upper-divs also get screwed too.

    Yeah, sorry...all that **** gets lumped in the math category which will drag down your BCPM GPA if you didn't do well in those classes. Sorry about that.

    unfortunately you cant pick and choose...all that needs to go into your AMCAS.
