up to a certain point all medical schools emphasize good grades. i dont know of any particular medical schools that dont look at grades as being very important, but you might want to look at the gpa averages for entering students at schools in which you are interested. just do a search of the schools and you can usually find that information. they usually have a mission statement on their sites as well. you might gain some insight into what they are looking for in applicants from there.

Decent grades are always required because they demonstrate you can get through the tough medical school courses.

Some interesting books out there are the MSAR (Medical School Admissions Requirements) and the Princeton Revew's Complete Books of Medical Schools. They both have admissions data and average scores.
