Hey!
This is a stupid question but I would really like some clarification...

if I assign a class as a "other science" subject, will it still be consider in my science gpa?

I am filling out both aacomas and amcas, and for the amcas it specifically stated that the BCPM comprised of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics courses but i can't find this clarification anywhere for aacomas.

Stupid question but please humor me =)


Thanks!

Post #2 in the pre-osteo FAQ:

The Science category would include all courses with subjects of Biology, Organic, Biochemistry, Other Science, Physics, and Inorganic Chemistry. Non-science would include courses with subjects of Math, English, Behavioral Sciences, and Non-science.

so for AACOMAS:
Other Science = Part of Science GPA
Math NOT included in Science GPA

More details are in the FAQ.
