    What do you put on secondaries for these?

    For example, I have an activity, a major project, completed over the course of months, in about 100 hours. However, much of it was from bursts of intense work: It ranged in time per week from 15 minutes to send some emails to straight through from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, napping in shifts with the people I was working with. Putting it as 4 hrs/week doesn't seem to correctly describe what I was doing.

    I sincerely doubt it will matter.

    I thought AMCAS asked for total hours, not hours per week?

    The question regarded Secondaries.

    Thanks, I will do that. For UC Irvine, It seems the hour/week box accepts text, not just integers. So '1 to 50' fits.
