What is Science GPA?
I am a senior in college changing my mind towards medicine. I am currently a computer science major. My current overall GPA is a little over 3.5. However I am very worried about the science GPA. What courses EXACTLY does it include? Are my computer science courses considered science? Does science just mean Bio 1/2, Chem 1/2, Organic 1/2, Physics 1/2, Calc 1, and labs? I am very worried, here are my science grades (I got 3 C+'s):
Chem 1: C+ Lab: A
Chem 2: B Lab: Withdrawal (I would have had an A, damnit)
Physics 1: A Lab: A
Physics 2: B Lab: B+
Physics 3: C+
Calc 1: B
Calc 2: A
Calc 3, Diff Eq, Linear Algebra, Vector Analysis: All B's
12 Computer Science courses: All A's except 1 B+
5 more physics classes: C+, A, A-, B, B
Other withdrawals: advanced Physics Lab (never retook it), Diff Eq (first time I took it), scuba diving (I have asthma)
I have not taken biology or organic chem yet. Next semester I am taking Bio 1, and retaking both Chem 1 and Chem 2. These will not overwrite my old chem grades, but I am determined to take them over to prepare for MCAT/organic (I took chemistry four years ago). Then I will finish organic and bio (and maybe take some more bio courses). I am fully determined to get A's in all of these courses. Assuming I do, do you think I have a chance of getting into med school with these science grades? Are my upper level physics courses considered or just the "core med courses"?
