    Let's say an applicant's grades in the first 3 years of undergrad had the same trend (about a ~3.4 average each year). If the applicant got straight A's in the last year of undergrad (mainly upper div courses though), how favorably would adcoms look upon that?

    Over the full year? Definitely a plus I think. The upper level courses are definitely more challenging. You didn't take any pre-reqs in that year did you?

    I'm sure it helped your BCPM though, if they were science courses.

    An upward trend is appreciated. there is one school that weights each year (1x fresh, 2x soph, etc.)... i believe that it is washington.
