Hi folks! I graduated with Honors in my BA for molecular cell bio and I was wondering if I should place this separately in the Work/Activities section on the AMCAS or should I mention this under my research experience (which was required to graduate with honors)?

do you have enough activities to fill up all the 15 possible places? If you are narrowing down in order to fit your activities all in, I would say include that honor under something else. If you are stretching things out a bit, then I think that honor could stand alone.

I did do an Honors Thesis and presented a poster at an Honors symposium on my research in order to graduate with honors. I guess I could just include this under a single heading for research.
