Hi all!

I'm a sophomore majoring in neuroscience at a CUNY school. I have AP credit in Chem, Bio, Calc, Phys (all 5). I've retaken gen chem and gen bio, and have taken multivariable calc and a statistics course.

I've also e-mailed and called a number of schools, and they've said that they'll take AP credits if my school did.

Do you think having AP rather than college credit for physics would be a hindrance to dental school applications?

Thanks!

As long as all of the schools you're interested in will definitely accept AP credit in the place of college physics, I think you should be fine..

AP credits might be a problem at some schools. I say grab an ADEA guide to know which schools accept them. It never hurts to know in advance.

I absolutely would take it in college, AP credits might be an unecessary disadvantage with a lot of school.
