    quick question-
    after you are doing entering all the schools you went to, and want to add coursework, anybody NOT get this screen or a college they went to?

    I had this screen show up for one of my community colleges I attended, but didn't show up for my university college. What's the matter? This is what showed up for my commutniy college and NOT University.

    i got a screen like that when i was entering my foreign coursework. if your cc was a small school, amcas might not know your grading scale.
    if they gave you the usual grades, i.e. A-F with -/+'s then select the first option.

    later, you'll also have to select how many of the units on that OT convert to semester hours. if it's already semester, just put 1 to 1.

    thanks! yes, it's a small CC and they give grades on a 4.0 scale. i had to pick the first (or was it second?) option. I also had to pick the "quarter hours" for the next screen.

    Hope I am doing it all right. This thing is not good for my nerves :rolleyes:
