    I was just curious, when you apply to medical school what science grades are calculated into your gpa? For instance I took lots of astronomy and Geology classes, they really do boost my gpa up. without them my gpa drops signifcantly as far as science grades go.. do these grades count to?? or is it just math, bio, and chem, phys?

    If someone could help me I would appreciate it thanx

    Sorry, but your geology and astronomy grades will not be used in the calculation of your sci GPA for AMCAS. Of course, they will be used for your overall GPA.

    BCPM (bio, chem, physics, math) for your sci. GPA calculation.

    How about graduate school grades? Are those counted in gpa calculation at all?

    No, graduate grades are your Graduate GPA, though post-bac grades can be counted for undergrad (since they are indeed undergrad classes)

    Depending on your school your astronomy classes may be classified under physics. Just a possibility.

    I know some schools that don't even count astronomy courses in your cumulative GPA, let alone your science GPA (one of them is I think U of Calgary or Alberta in Canada).
