    I was an environmental science major in Undergrad, my brother has since shown me the light that is dentistry. I am curious about what is considered science. I am unsure of the following: Conservation biology, ecology, geography, geology, water resources management, land-use planning, introduction to environmental science, geographic information systems (GIS), calculus.

    Thanks!

    And also, is the science GPA regarded more highly than cumulative? My science GPA is about 3.7, whereas non-science (thanks to economics) is more like a 2.8.

    Whether science GPA is regarded more highly than cumulative GPA is up for debate, they are both very important. However, your non-science GPA alone is hardly important.

    yeah, that sounds about right. most of the classes that you listed will be non-science.

    I did a bit of research and found that geology is definitely science and that con bio mosy likely science as well. The others are to be determined. That is for your help.
