    When i was a sophomore in high school, i took an Algebra II course at a community college to get ahead. Is it necessary for me to submit the transcript for course to AAMC?

    Did you do well in the class? If so it's a nice little unexpected boost in your GPA :]

    similar question:
    Am I allowed to post it in here> I ll shoot anyways..


    I took a college course in High school, but It was not accepted by my university (it was one of those college in high school program--so we had "college" class in our high school). Since my uni did not accept it, I forgot abt it and personally do not want it to count since it is an A-.

    What do u think, do I have to report it on AMCAS, even though it does not appear any where but my HS transcritpt?

    thanks so much!

    Theoretically yes, you need to report it. I'd rather have an A- than have to worry about AMCAS finding out I did not honestly report a college-level course and then deal with the consequences.

    Depends on if your HS or the college issuing the class recorded it on their records. If only the HS, then no. If it is the college, then yes.

    How would AMCAS know about a class taken in HS if the college has no record of it? They wouldnt.

    Which college was it run by? If it was a "college" class in high school, then it must have been run by a university and therefore must be reported. Contact that university to get the transcript. If it was just an IB or AP class that's another story.

    Dunno, but if the college the class was taken at has that A- in a record somewhere, who knows.
