What do 'IP' and 'OOP' mean?
In province (IP), out of province (OOP).
What does the 'special' category mean?
Courses like COOP that are counted towards the GPA calculation regardless if they were taken during the school year or the summer
Does MDbuddy take into account things like pass/fail courses and summer courses into the calculation?
Yes! Depending on the medical school, MDbuddy either uses or discards courses depending on their type, giving you an accurate list of GPAs of your course portfolio.
Due to COVID-19, X University stopped counting winter 2020 courses in their GPA calculation. Does MDBuddy know this?
Technically no, however, this is a workaround! To calculate your wGPA with the above changes placed by COVID-19, follow these steps. (1) Change your 2020 winter term course grades to PASS, (2) save, (3) recalculate your GPA! Now, this new wGPA will be available for all universities. Once you have seen your changed wGPA, make sure to change your courses back to your original grades so that you get accurate GPA calculations for everything else.
