Do you think AMCAS will accept these courses as science? I know they are not listed in the catalog, but since they are science-related, I was wondering if I could consider them as factored into the sGPA…

ENGH (English) Natural Science Synthesis course - basically write a research proposal and study research design in a field of bio, neuro, chem or physics; designated as ENGH

CDS (computers) - class is called computing for scientists and we learn matlab and statistical techniques that future scientists and medical professionals would use to interpret data; designated under computers

Agreed with above. Although you could try listing the latter of the two as "math" and see if it would pass, but that's even a stretch.

I have gotten courses similar to the first one accepted as BCPM but they were 100% biology and usually involved a substantial amount of biology literature.
