    I had a couple of questions. First, do psych classes, both behavioral and biological, count in the science GPA? Also, does anyone know what are the average stats for Touro-MI?

    Thanks

    I don't know about the psych classes, but I think they are not included in BCPM gpa.

    For Touro-MI...go here and select demographics:

    Hi. THanks. So, probably my neuroscience classes count, but not behavioral psych. I'll maybe ask them about my biology of behavior. Okay, so a 3.0 cum and science would be on the low end, but not out of the ballpark, especially with a stronger MCAT, good recs, shadowing, and research, right?

    neurology is under Biology so goes into BCP
    behavorial psych is under behavorial sciences so is NOT in BCP.
    You always call and ask.

    3.0 with a strong MCAT should get you some interviews. It's always nicer to get closer to the mean thoguh.

    Randomly, two of my three majors are psychology and neuroscience and I don't think they really counted for much in the total grading scale for biology.

    neurology classes are in your science GPA. Check out the FAQ.
