    genetic, evolution both go under science and so do math classes.

    Those you mentioned would all count. There are many additional classes, too--genetics and evolution as you mentioned, plus anything generally related to: biochem, histology, microbiology, cell biology, anatomy, sometimes even exercise- or food-science courses may count.

    In part what is included is determined by how your college or university lists them on your transcript (i.e. Bio 225 may be Ecology, but because it is a "Bio" course, it would like count towards science gpa). Additionally, some dental programs will count math courses, to come up with a BCPM (BiologyChemistryPhysicsMath) to determine your science gpa.

    If I recall correctly, ithe science gpa figure used by lots of programs is what AADSAS reports. So there may be some latitude you have when you enter your classes on AADSAS (i.e. if you took a course that doesn't neatly fit a course title or description AADSAS provides).

    AADSAS actually also counted a Computer Science class and a Geogr (earth science) class onto my science gpa. Some times there is no ryme or reason to what they will throw on there because I have another Geogr class they they didn't put on it. I hate AADSAS!!!!!!
