Hi, I'm hoping some people who have been in my shoes can help me here. My BCPM GPA is a 3.49 and my overall is a 3.78. The reason for the difference between the two is that I transferred to my current university and none of the transferred credits have grades associated with them, just a "by examination" score. Therefore, my BCPM is being calculated based on mostly upper lever chem classes (my major) and none of the intro classes (chem/phys/bio 101, etc). Here's the breakdown to give you an idea: CHEM 101/102 (and labs): BY EXAMINATION CHEM 261 (orgo I): BY EXAMINATION PHYS 104/105 (and labs): BY EXAMINATION BIOL 101 (and lab): BY EXAMINATION Analytical Chem (CHEM 241) A- (lab A) Biochem (CHEM 430) A- CHEM 262 (orgo II) B (lab A-) BIOL 252 (anatomy) B+ (combined with lab) The science GPA comes out to just 3.49. Do you think some allowance will be made for my lower science gpa (annoyingly just below 3.5) because of the fact it's only higher level classes, and that I only have one B? Also, I'm currently in summer school taking another chem upper level class. Getting an A in that course would put me up to 3.52, but I also have a horrifically busy summer. Do you think it's best to request my transcript now, or risk getting less than an A in the summer course and request after the class is done? Thanks for your time!
