Hi, Do medical schools only look at the GPA from science courses/pre-reqs? Or do they look at the overall GPA too?
On your application it will have you report overall GPA and science only GPA (which, if I remember right, is technically math and science). For science majors like me, these GPAs are often the same. However for non-traditional majors (e.g. art, history, etc.) these GPAs may be dramatically different. Which one has more weight? I am sure that depends on the school and application. Admissions committees won’t just look at one aspect of your application, they view it all together as one package.
I hope that answers your question. All the best,
