    Hey all,
    I have a few questions regarding the amcas app which I am almost done with. 1. If I Was acknowledged in a paper, could I at this point in my career put that as a publication and if not, what can i put it under?

    2. for publications, what did you guys put in the 'title' box... ie. the title of the paper or that you were a 'research intern'?

    3. also for pubs, for the description, did you put the full title, authors and all, in that box or did yo uactually describe what it was all about?

    4. did you input the courses that you will be taking in the fall into the amcas course work section or ended it with junior year grades?

    5. I did significant work in high school in arsearch lab, is it okay to put that down as a research experience, even though it technically isnt 'post-sec'?

    6. hmmm....

    6. Did you guys use all the 500+ characters given for the descriptions?

    i'll take a crack at this:
    1) you could - but i don't think they care that much; i've been acknowledged in a Science article but i didn't bother - just talked about research experience (it wasn't that long)
    2)i put a solid publication as a seperate experience and the title of the paper was the title of the experience - the research experience in general was a seperate one (Research Intern or whatever)
    3)i managed to put in the authors (me and another bloke) as well as a super short one sentance summary - all this took me 499 characters
    4)put future work in your senior year section - don't be too concerned with it unless you have pre-reqs to complete
    5)i wouldn't - i had a lot as well, but didn't bother with it - i've been told specifically not to include it even if it is something like intel ISEF or even westinghouse
    6)sometimes - no point filling space for the sake of it - be succinct and to the point.
    cheers!

The results of this research led to primary (or, for you secondary or tertiary) authorship on a manuscript entitled blah blah blah recently accepted for publication in blah blah blah....

    I think you're supposed to put your future course on AMCAS, esp if your school does pre-registration the semester before. At Emory at least, courses you've signed up in the coming fall turn up on your official transcript. Better to be safe then sorry.

    Acknowledgement is junk (if you mean that part at the end where they say "Thanks to jim the coffee guy and jake the janitor"). Most people wouldn't include it. --Trek
