Medical School Admissions (2013-2014 Cycle): AMCAS Grade Conversion Guide

Now that pre-med across the US are revving up for the upcoming medical school application cycle, I am fielding many questions about how AMCAS calculates GPA. In an attempt to create a standardized system, AMCAS has made the GPA calculation process a bit convoluted. Thankfully, they have created a free, downloadable AMCAS Grade Conversion Guide to help pre-meds understand the system and calculate their own AMCAS GPA.

Be sure to download this guide asap and calculate your GPA. You may be surprised by how different the AMCAS GPA is to your school's GPA, and this disparity could affect whether or not you should apply this application cycle.

As always, feel free to send me any questions.

Good luck!
