I graduated with a cum gpa of 2.68 and a csueb gpa of 2.96, sad I know. Now I know my grad school doesn’t count, but will the classes I am taking at community college count towards the overall undergrad gpa that medical schools are looking at? Advisors from 2 different post-bacc programs I am interested in suggested I take intro bio/chem and precalculus at community college before applying to the program since I have 0 science courses from undergrad. I currently have a 3.92 at the CC and plan on taking a few other intro science classes in the meantime. Do the gpa from the CC count as/towards the undergrad gpa? And if I were to get into a post-bacc and do well, do those classes count toward the overall undergrad gpa? I am trying to get a better understanding of what counts as the overall undergrad gpa because when I calculated the gpa from my undergrad, the CC classes I am taking now and the gpa from a post bacc program (let’s pretend it’s a 4.0) it comes out to a 3.5 which also isn’t the greatest.
I’m not trying to get into a top 20 school (wouldn’t that be nice) but I want to get a feel for what the chances of getting into a school are even if I receive a stellar gpa in a post-bacc program. MCAT scores obviously play a huge part and that is a whole other hurdle, but I am just concerned at the moment on the gpa aspect.
