Science GPA Confusion

Recommended Posts

I recently applied this cycle and unfortunately did not get accepted. When following up with my first choice program, I was surprised to learn that my science GPA was different than on CASPA by almost 0.2 points. I was wondering if anybody else has had this experience. I was surprised to find this out and am now looking at retaking some science classes.

Do you mean the school had a diff sci GPA than on your CASPA app? If so, keep in mind programs get your info from CASPA and then can do with that data what they want - including calculate their own GPAs picking the courses they consider to be important. Some do a most recent 60 credits for example, or they could have their own definition of what they consider to be science. It would be worth following up with the school on what they are looking for.
