    Does AMCAS recalculate your GPA based on the letter grades entered, or do they just pull it directly off your transcripts?

    My university's grading scale seems a bit different than the norm(i could be wrong), so I was wandering if AMCAS has a standardized scale.

    Thanks,
    John

    Yes, AMCAS has a standardized grading scale that they impose upon the letters you give them. This can change your GPA a bit depending on just how strange the grading system is at your University. Usually AMCAS's changes doen't make a whole lot of difference.

    sorry but this may be a stupid question, the amcas grading scale is A 4.0, A- 3.7, B+ 3.3, B 3.0, B- 2.7, etc. right?
