When entering AP credit on AMCAS, what should I list it as under "Academic Year" and "Academic Term"?
WilliamsF1 said:Yes, put it under your first semester of the institution that accepted it as credit. If you look at your transcript from your school, it should be there. Mine says this for my college transcript:
CREDIT BY EXAM - ADV PLACEMENT 2003 FALL
MAC2311 Calculus AB P 4.00
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 1BA 2003 FALL
BSC2010 INTEGRA PRINC BIO 1....
Even though I took AP Calc in 2001-02 year, it should go under your first semester of the school that accepted it as college credit. However, I didn't put "freshman" under the catagory for school year. I put "High School." Notice that the "1BA" is when I was recognized as a frehsman and not the part of AP credit. Hope this helps. Btw, I'm surprised you just started doing this now considering you got an ace score on April MCAT. I figured you must've already been having interviews
Edit: The "P" for Calc means a grade of Pass. My univ doesn't record the letter grade you get in high school. Some schools might, so check up on that. 4.00 is the number of credit hours, too.
Have you already sent your transcript in? How long does it usually take for them to get it and then make sure you typed it in correctly?ADeadLois said:Should be submitted by this weekend though.

I haven't started my PS yet. I'm thinking I will just write about 1 experience I had that made me go into medicine (surgery). Do you think this would be enough or do you think they're looking for more talk about who I am, volunteering I've done, etc. Sorry for the thread hijack.
