    did anyone else come on with enough AP credit that after their first semester at school they had more than 30-35 credits? if so did you change on the AMCAS from FR->SO after that first semester?


    I did, and now I feel like that was wronge. Most importantly, did anyone do this and alreaddy get verified?

    Yea, I e-mailed AMCAS about it and that's how they told me to classify the semesters.

    did they verify you already? so every year you switched status between your first and second semester?

    Not verified yet. Sorry, I didn't switch off in the middle of every year. My second year was junior, third senior, and fourth continues as senior.

    EDIT: This might be different for you because I came in as a soph.. Maybe you're right to split every year.

    Have you submitted already? It's probably not that big of a deal to have a correction on your app. Many applicants get x's and still receive acceptances to med schools.

    im sure they do. i can imagine if you input B's when you got F's and that was corrected and have a problem, but this sorta correction, if made, should not be a problem.

    I did that, but they changed it back during verification. It doesn't really matter to me though.

    you did what, the same as me? and when you say they changed it back, you mean they made it so that every 2 semesters regardless of how many AP credits you have was 1 status?

    is your app now littered with X's?

    I got about 25 quarter credits in HS so my first year of college I said I was a freshman the first semester and a sophmore the second. but then I said I was a sophmore the entire next year too. so they changed my entire first year to freshman. there are a few Xs but I don't think it matters that much.

    I entered college as a sophomore, and i was a junior by second semester of my first year, I think.

    When I entered it on AMCAS though, I started with high-school for all of those credits before starting college and then just went freshman-senior year..it verified fine
