    I am a trying to figure out what my science GPA will be and am not sure whether Nutrition classes, Agric/Horticulture or a Bioethics class would be included. Does anybody know?
    Also, I recently got my MCATS back and got a 11P, 11V, 10B. This is ok but I did not take OChem labs, Genetics, or any Molecular Bio or Physiology before I took it (I am a Botany major). I am reasonably sure I could raise my bio scores a couple of points but I am not sure if it is worth it. Time is not a problem, I will have taken these classes by next April and am applying for 2001. Any thoughts?

    A 32 composite is really good, you may not need to re-take the MCAT, depending on what schools you want to go to. I thought your science GPA would be based on all of the courses that earn science degree credit -- ie Botany, Physics, etc., would, but - for example - Earth Science 101 wouldn't.

    If you go through AMCAS, then your science GPA is based on Math, Bio, Chem, and Physics courses only (the BCMP summary that AMCAS sends back to you). Then they will calculate your "AO" or all others GPA and then a composite GPA.
