    Hi,

    I just had my AMCAS verified. When I originally submitted it I didn't add my AP credits that are on my transcript because I didn't get a grade or credits for them, but I later found that you are supposed to add them. So I called AMCAS and I was told that they add up to 8 courses.

    However, on my verified application I don't see any AP courses added. I would like to have AP calculus show up. I can put it in my secondaries, but it seems like it should be on my transcript. Should AMCAS have added the AP courses in? Should I send in a correction request?

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm not sure you'll be able to change this for the current cycle. According to the AMCAS instruction manual (p.72)

    If it makes you feel any better, schools will usually only accept AP credits if the sending institution gave you course credit for your AP scores.

    So in your case, I don't really think having the AP credits listed would have done anything for you in the first place.

    Alright, thanks. That's what I was originally thinking, in which case I'll get over it. Just talked to someone at AMCAS who seems to think they shouldve been added though and said she'd look into it.

    Thanks for the input.
