    Are advanced placement credits and transfer credits factored into some medical school's 90 semester hour requirement?

    Yes. Even when they don't count toward completing prerequisites, they'd generally still count for med school application credit requirements (assuming they are listed on at least one original US or Canadian college transcript).

    also, if you are talking US medical schools...go ahead and forget that 90hrs requirement, you're going to need a bachelors unless you have a cure for cancer in your pocket

    plan on graduating

    I think the original post refers to the common requirement that one have 90 semester hour equivalents on transcripts before one can apply to med school.

    then you are set...I've seen people interpreting it the other way and it does them no good...good luck with your app season!
