yeesh, read the amcas directions. They tell you to put all AP courses under your freshman year and NOT your high school. Don't believe me? Go to pg. 39.

You're welcome ;)

I have a question too. I've just been browsing through various med school websites, and saw that Columbia does not accept AP credits for prerequisites. Are there any other schools like this?

Also, I don't know how many of you would know about this question, but it's worth asking anyway. I got my bio and English credits through IB, not AP... am I able to submit them as IB on the AMCAS, or do I have to say they're AP and explain later? (I am a bio major, so I will be taking additional biology classes, but I have only taken one additional English class that was required for my major, and most colleges require two, so I wouldn't have that as a backup).

Thanks for anyone who helps. :)

I am in the same situation in regards to IB- all my "AP" credits are actually IB credits, but I was told they are put under AP on the AMCAS, becasue on my transcripts they are listed as AP with no grade.

I heard they have a policy where if you take upper level courses in the same subject, they dont fret about APing out of general bio/chem/english etc.

Can anyone confirm this?

That list might be out of date . . . this from Temple's FAQ:

Q: I received AP credit for one of your pre-requisites. Can this be used to fulfill your pre-medical requirements?


A: We will accept AP credits as long as you received credit from your undergraduate institution on your transcript. If you are using AP credit for one of the pre-requisites, we do like to see upper level courses completed in that discipline.
