    So for their coursework requirements, Idk if I'm in a dilemma because it asks for a year of general chemistry with lab but my university (UCSD for those also in the same boat) only offers one quarter of lab with three separate quarters of the general chem series (so the lab course is a whole course in itself with its own lectures). It's kinda the same for Ochem with us....anyone have input? :/ I really appreciate it!!

    M3 here from another UC also with quarter system. I can't remember how I filled out the application, but it'll be fine. If you're really worried, send an email to admissions ([email protected]) and ask.

    Thanks so much for the input!

    (This is for others) I played around with the course input and noticed that for the lab requirements, they only require at least one entry for a lab grade. So I guess all is well!

    So for the place where it asks "Lab included?" you just put the grade you got in the lab course? Nothing else? I was planning on using one of my bioengineering lab courses as the requirement.

    Since the first box requires a lab grade (whether or not the course has a lab included) I would put the lab course in the first box, and then the non-lab lecture courses in the remaining boxes and just leave the "Lab grade" question blank since the later boxes don't require the grade.

    Just received my secondary, I submitted AMCAS June 18th, was verified on 7/11

    It is kinda weird that the "secondary" is just my Paypal info though

    Edit: nevermind, I read through the rest of this thread. They will send you to the real secondary after you pay.

    I just received the secondary, but I am hesitant about this institution. I live literally about 40 minutes away though so I may just pay the $100 because it would not cost anything for me to go to the interview.

    Anyone having this issue: Part III-Prerequisites page-- Clicking No for "Lab Included?" opens dialogue for "Lab grade," but clicking Yes for "Lab Included" prevents from entering lab grade?... Not sure how to proceed...

    Seems sensible to me. If you have 2 grades on your transcript, one for lecture and one for lab, then you click "No" so you can enter your lab grade. If you only have one grade then click "Lab Included" and enter that single, combined grade.

    Verified 6/27 and still haven't heard anything from them. I have gotten secondaries from all the school that filter so I am not sure what is going on.

    I submitted a primary here around July 18th and just received the secondary a few days ago. I would not worry too much it is still really early in the cycle.

    For this question, would years after graduating college count as gap years?

    5. [Optional] If your education has been discontinuous since high school, please explain why. Examples of discontinuities include time taken off while obtaining your undergraduate degree, in addition to gap years. (250 words maximum)

    Yes. Unless you did another degree after graduation, such as postbac, MS, MPH, etc. And maybe even then it might be considered a gap year since you're not a "traditional" (going to med school straight after undergrad) student.
