Science GPA

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by GatorWell, May 8, 2002.

  1. What classes count for science GPA? I am a nutrition major. I was wondering if nutrition classes count as part of science GPA. Thanks a lot.

    "Science" GPA means Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math. What academic department do nutrition majors fall under at your school? Anthropology?

    the 'help' menu on the AMCAS application gives pretty detailed instructions regarding where certain classes should be classified. nutrition classes don't count as science classes, which are limited to the hard sciences and math--nutrition, as well as most other health-oriented courses, falls under 'health' and thus doesn't factor into your science GPA.

    GatorWell,

    Check with your pre-med advisor. You'll get an exact GPA. My GPA varied a little between the university, TMDSAS, and each school. I believe they can calculate it however they chose.

    :)

If so, that would be great for me! I got all A's in Calc I, II, III, but a B in Differential Equations :confused:
