I graduated school with a degree in biology but due to low grades I will be retaking most of the med school prerequisites as a non degree student at a local school. I will be doing a DIY post-bacc. How are grades as a non degree student factored into the med school application? Are all the grades calculated together?
The answer is to both your questions is yes:
Your original UG and Post-Bacc GPA will be calculated separately and will combined into an overall GPA. the link to the AMCAS doc is below it may not download correctly.
So I have attached a copy of the document to this post as well as, what appears to be a well thought out spreadsheet to calculate it.
