    Does the AMCAS allow you to include research and thesis credits as classes? I know these are not classes, but since we are given a grade for them, I thought they would reflect research potential!

    I have over 30 credit hours from my MS and Ph.D. thesis that I would hate to leave out, since they really boost my GPA! :D

    To all grad students out there, are you including your research/thesis credits?

    you have to include every single course credit you have ever earned, so yes, you must include the research credits. if they boost your GPA as well, so be it. :D
