Thanks everyone for help with my previous posts. I received more information from the 4yr univ that I am applying to for the pre-med and once again the mind started inquiring!
Background: My undergrad and postgrad are from outside of US. I have taken many credits to enhance my skills over the past 6 years as a non-degree student in various 4 yr universities across US.
I am starting with pre-med coursework at another 4 yr university in spring-2011. I have applied for a 2nd undergrad degree with Major = Undecided. I am transferring credits from my previous endeavours.
The tentative evaluation done by the university summed up credits to about 100, which will be mentioned on my 2nd undergrad transcript. The university will also calculate GPA for these credits. (Tentative evaluation gpa for 100 credits = 3.6)
I do not see a point in getting a 2nd undergrad degree. My purpose is to build my application for med school with previous credits and other variables.
So, I am trying to understand how will this be reported on med school application, so I can begin to work on other variables to make my profile stronger?
- Will my pre-med coursework be reported separately on my application?
- How will the previous 100 credits, reported on my application?
- What will be the cumulative GPA in my case?
Any thoughts, ideas, or insight into this will be extremely helpful.
Also, is there a website/book that can give detailed information on how scores are reported on med school app? This will be extremely helpful to me.
