    Under the Course Type box, do I need to mark Pass/Fail box if I took the class for CR? (It was available either as A-F, or CR/No CR).
    below is aamc's help file.

    ===
    Pass/Fail courses are those that are attempted under a Pass/Fail system that allows no more than two passing grades (e.g., Credit/No Credit, Pass/Fail, Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory, High Pass/Pass/Fail, etc.)



    Pass/Fail courses attempted under a Pass/Fail system that allows three or more passing grades (e.g. High Pass/Pass/Low Pass/Fail) will be treated as a regular pass/fail course unless your school provides an alpha grade conversion (e.g. A,B,C).

    I would check it as pass/fail. Credit/no credit sounds like pass/fail to me.

    the thing is that if i don't check pass/fail box, it still works but doesn't display a grade under the "AMCAS grade" section. so, i guess i'll check the pass/fail box.
