My school is on the quarter system and converting the AMCAS guidelines for semester hours to quarter hours I got:

FR 0 - 52.5 units
SO 54 - 97.5 units
JR 99 - 142.5 units
SR 144+ units

I entered into my Quarter System university in my first year with 52 AP units, and taking 12 units that quarter made me a sophomore in my first quarter there.
If I base my academic status only on units, then I will skip my Freshman year and go SO - JR - SR.
My second option would be to list my 1st year as Freshman year, then my second year as my Junior year, and 3/4 as senior year.
So it looks like either way I will have to skip a year and I was wondering which way would be more appropriate.

the thing is that THEY will be the ones checking it. I have a very complex case with military credits, and quarter system as well, and I literally called them, and they talked me through it. Just be very nice over the phone, beg if you have to, and they can be really nice. Doing it exactly the way they want it done will save you a lot of time.
