    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?

    Thanks!
    Jolly :)

    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
