Calculating grad school admission GPA
Hello all! I'm a little confused on how to calculate my GPA for the purpose of applying to PhD programs. Most of the programs I'm looking at want your last 2 years primarily, but I'm wondering where that cut off is. I was technically a junior like halfway through my second year, and I have a lot of credits that don't count toward my GPA as they are pass/no pass only classes. I calculated my last 90 graded credits which puts me in like winter term of my second year, which sucks because that's when I was doing terribly in school (I was pre-med and didn't know what I wanted). Is the 90 last graded credits a good way to go about it? And I know you send your whole transcript to grad programs anyway so do they look at the whole transcript and the "last 2 years" GPA calculation to get a more holistic view of the person?
