    I'm confused as to how to enter study abroad coursework.

    I originally entered them under both my home institution and the study abroad institution. It looked odd with the classes listed twice, so I called AACOMAS and they said to only list those courses under my home institution. OK, fine. I did so. Now my app is undelivered, and I'm told to list my study abroad courses under the foreign institution instead, and remove it from my home institution. So I changed it. A new issue has come up, and it's probably the reason why I listed them at both universities previously: My GPA is calculated differently than it was before. In fact, my study abroad courses are now not even counted in my GPA. I can change all the grades to an A, or all the grades to an F, and the GPA is completely unaffected. What am I doing wrong here?

    Edit: Forget it. I'm just going to leave it as is, GPA unaffected, and resubmit. We'll see what happens.
