    So on AMCAS we need to include all of our grades, regardless if they have been replaced. How do they know what these grades are if they are removed from our official transcript?

    I'm pretty sure they have a way of finding out, even if it isn't on your official transcript.

    You never know the paper trail that exists out there, it's just better to be honest than look like a liar and have your acceptance(s) rescinded later for dishonesty.

    You still have to report grades that aren't on your transcript? Wow, AMCAS is hardcore. I didn't have any grades replaced, so this wasn't an issue, but I would have guessed that if it's not on your transcript, it doesn't need to be reported. I guess I would have guessed wrong, lol.

    Yeah, you do have to report grades.

    I retook a G-chem class, and my school cleared the old grade. 4 weeks after submitting my primary, I got an email from AMCAS saying that there was an error on my application. It was because I put down "RP" (my school's code for retaking a course) which was on my official transcript, instead of the original grade, which was NOT on my transcript.

    Yes, AMCAS is hardcore.
