    I opened up a AADSAS just to look at it last cycle, but I'm applying for this cycle. I vaguely remember there being a spot to list a 2nd major, but I remember something confusing. If I have a double major right now as an undergraduate, would my 2nd major be my 2nd major under 1st degree, or 2nd major under 2nd degree? I think that's what the question was...There were two ways to list a 2nd major. Anyone know what I'm talking about and which one I'm supposed to put?

    I think this is funny because I did the same double major as you. Even the BS and BA were the same. Anyways, I also looked into the same situation and this is what I remember finding:

    The 2nd major should be listed as the 2nd major on the first degree. This makes sense, as both majors will be conferred at the same time on the same degree (also literally as both of my majors were written on the same diploma).

    I believe the 2nd degree option is if you got an additional degree at a different time.

    I wish I had my sources to back this up, but cannot find it again on the AADSAS FAQs.

    How did you open AADSAS if it has been closed for a week?

    Anywa, there really is no place to put your second major, but dental schools will see that on your official transcript from your college. Your transcript should list 2 majors on it...

    i meant I opened it a while back and remember seeing it, but now it's closed. Anyone else actually go through this? I know there is a place to put it.

    Ummmm... There are actually two ways of doing it, and the OP explained both.

    I too opened up an application last cycle, and if I remember correctly, it explained what to do for a double major at that section of the application. Although it has closed now, I believe my previous post is correct way of going about it.

    Thanks Hysteria. If you search "AADSAS Double Major", somebody said the opposite of that...that's why I'm trying to figure out the correct way for sure so there's no confusion. I'm not trying to challenge your answer or anything, but I'm sure you agree we should both be sure before we submit AADSAS!

    Here it is from the horse's mouth (the app instructions):


    2nd Major for 1st Degree

    Enter official major course of study at the institution. For instance, you completed a double major as an undergraduate student. Select "No Major" if you did not have a second major.



    2nd Degree from Same Institution

    If you earned a second degree from the same institution, select the second degree from the list provided. For example, you earned an Associate’s degree from ABC University and subsequently a Bachelor’s degree from ABC University. Enter your Bachelor’s degree information from ABC University in this section. (However, if you earned your Associate’s degree from ABC University and your Bachelor’s degree from XYZ university, do not list your Bachelor’s degree here; list it when you are entering degree information for XYZ university.)
