Hey Guys,

So I know this sounds crazy but I've attended 8 different schools in the process of getting my degree (2 universities and 6 cc's). The thing is those 6 community colleges were all in the same district offering the same classes, but I attended the different schools only because of how they fit into my schedule, not because I was crazy and just couldnt commit to a school. Basically same thing as attending like ASU west and ASU poly but still getting the degree from ASU. All the credits transferred to the university so no problems with them not being legitimate. Is there a way to note this on amcas so it doesn't look like I was in school like part time all over the place taking a class a time? Also, has anyone had experience with this and had trouble verifying? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I plan on submitting the day AMCAS opens to allow plenty of time for receipt of all the paperwork.

I don't think it'll be a problem. Even if you were taking courses at multiple colleges during the same semester, your primary app will still specify when you took those courses. So it wont look like you were just being part time all the time.

I did a similar thing by taking physics at a different community college within the same district cause the physics professors at my home CC sucked.

You will be fine. They will know the courses are taken concurrently due to the fact you have logged it down on course list that you have made for each college. (ex. Spring semester 2013: University X = 9 credits, Community College Y = 3 credits, Community College Z = 3 credits).
