    Great tips for entering your "Work/Activities" for AMCAS

    Aren't Dean's lists based strictly on GPA? Since I made Dean's list every semester save the one below 3.5 this is what I assumed. If so, what is the benefit of listing it if they already know what grade you received in every one of your classes?

    Hahaha, wow. If my school is top 5% as well, then that's just sad.

    Dean's list at my school is 3.7+, so even the pre-pharm and pre-dent students get it.

    I put it down just for the sake of having another space filled. The deans list is really quite worthless.

    instead of putting that you got on the dean's list in multiple boxes/sections, you group it altogether with an explanation of what qualifies you to be on the Dean's list at your school: eg top 5% or GPA above 3.xx.

    At my school it is top 10-15% of the biological sciences division any one quarter. And you might want to check if the deans list honor is listed on your academic transcript, because for every time I made it, its listed right below the grades that quarter. I'm not sure if all colleges do this.....but it would be a waste of space if its already listed on your transcript.

    Except the schools never see your actual transcript. Only amcas does.

    I've never been impressed by a listing of "Dean's List" on the AMCAS. I've never been put off by it either.

    I honestly don't see the point of putting dean's list on your AMCAS. It's essentially a designation that says you did well one semester/multiple semesters, which is apparent because schools have your transcript. You don't need to fill all 15 activities...
