thats how i works at my school.Originally posted by amelie
what i mean is...the g chem (lecture (3) plus the lab (1) equals the necessary 4 credit hours for g chem I, say. for whatever reason, some schools award distinct credit hours for lecture versus lab.

i see. well, if the 2.5 hours for lecture and the 0.5 hour for lab is not distinct on the transcipt (i.e. reads gen chem I, 3 hrs.) .then i would just take a lab class somewhere else...
The lab class is 6 hours ever other week (3 hours per week) == .5 credOriginally posted by DALABROKA
I think that as long as the total hours of class per week are consistant with the "normal" way G-chem is taught (ie., 3hrs or 4hrs lecture/recitation and 3hrs lab per week for a 16 week semester) that this would satisfy the pre-reqs for chem I. Amcas may adjust your schools reported hours to "amcas" hours if your school has an unusual way of issuing the credits. How many credits do you need to graduate from your school? I have never seen .5hrs of credit before.
