Science GPA and Non-science GPA for Premed Students

High SchoolCollegeMedical SchoolResidencyFellowshipPractice

When you apply to medical schools they will calculate your science GPA and your non-science GPA. They will evaluate your candidacy to medical school based on both of these GPAs. As such, both GPAs need to be high and both of them tell a story about you. Your science GPA tells medical schools how well you know the sciences, while your non-science GPA tells medical schools how well you perform at everything else.

For both allopathic and osteopathic medical schools your non-science GPA consists of those courses not considered in calculating your science GPA.

Allopathic Medical Schools

For allopathic medical schools (M.D. schools) the science GPA consists of courses from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math.

Osteopathic Medical Schools

For osteopathic medical schools (D.O. schools) the science GPA consists of courses from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and NOT Math.
