    I have taken a couple of classes in high school which counted as my college credits. When dental schools look at my GPA, do they consider my undergrad gpa more than the combined GPA which is calculated by AADSAS?

    They usually look at what AADSAS gives them.

    there are 3 categories of GPAs AADSAS will calculate
    1) is the undergrad stuff (this includes community college, post-bacc, and/or college credit courses taken while in high school)
    2) is the masters GPA (self explanatory)
    3) is the combined (#1 + #2 above)

    From what I've seen, the undergrad GPA is most looked at / most favored
