Hey all-
On my AMCAS app, I accidentally listed Principles of Biology I twice, rather than Principles of Bio I and II. However, the course numbers, grades and hours all all correct. I just noticed this, and several of my secondaries have already been sent out. Should I contact schools to clarify that it's I and II or do you think it's not a big deal?

Medical School Admissions committees are smarter than you think! They'll understand especially if the course numbers are correct. Shame on AMCAS for not finding it though. I thought that's why we paid them 130$ a pop.

Agree, I wouldn't fret over it. As long as the numbers make sense, it's fine. It'll look like a 'II'/'I' typo, which will probably go completely unnoticed.

No biggy. Explain if they ask. Otherwise, they probably will gloss over it like the AMCAS reviewer did.
