    Hi all,

    I have a question about indicating AP credit on the AMCAS application. I indicated all my AP credit during first semester freshman year, and it's indicated as supplemental hours. But when I click 'print application', it says I have 0 AP credits under supplemental hours. Is this just a bug in the application? I also am submitting within the next few days. Many of you already have secondaries and interviews lined up. Am I at a great disadvantage by submitting my application this late in the game?

    Thanks for all your help.

    are your transcripts all in order and on their way to AMCAS?because this will only further delay the processing of your application after you submit your application.

    no, I don't think you are too late at this point - but you are squeaking in - remember, the August MCATers won't have their apps considered until after scores in October - and they are not too late to be competitive -

    i had the same problems with AP credits. When my AMCAS got verified, they corrected something with my AP course. I entered it exactly as you said you did, so I wouldn't worry about it. And I don't think you're too late either, just remember those ppl takin the MCAT in August. You've got to be ahead of them, and many of them get in too! :)

    good luck!

    put a 'G' in the grade section. that may make it included in the supplemental hours. i didn't enter this grade initially, but amcas changed it and .: changed my supp hours.
