So I'm filling out NYITCOM's rn, and it says

Biology
One year with lecture and lab, including a basic course in general biology or zoology.

Minimum Credits8 | Minimum Grades2

So if you were a bio major, and have like 20 bio classes, do you add them all where you can manually check off the classes from your prereqs? Or just intro bio 1 + 2 + labs

edit: or is that just for our reference?

I cherry picked my classes that I had better grades in to fill my pre-reqs. I sometimes listed more classes that fit the category, but I do not think it's necessary. They will see all your classes on your app anyway - at least this is my take on it @Goro I had an II to NYITCOM JB and they emailed me about my english pre-reqs that were a little iffy asking for syllabi.

Interesting, thanks! I saw one school specified only inputting the minimum, but the rest didn't say anything.

I used some APs so I wanted to show my upper-level replacements (even though it appears most are fine w/ AP), but then again I have a ton of classes for one of the requirements so I wasn't sure if it's a problem to add all that.

I would say don't add all. Just maybe one or two extra. You can view your AACOMAS application to that specific school after you submit and the pre-req section you are completing now will show a list at the end of the app if I'm remembering it right. However, before that section they see ALL your classes anyway.
