I just realized after submitting my application quite some time ago that I forgot to add another university along with the courses/grades for them into AMCAS (as I didn't have access to those in progress grades until late September). Is there any way I can add a university along with the courses/grades for it as I don't see an option to do that now. This means resubmitting and recalculating GPA as well. Thank you.

1) once you submit AMCAS, it is now final. There is no way to add coursework to a submitted and verfication
2) it is up to you to have known about these grades prior to submitting AMCAS. Failure to include them could void your application
3) if we are talking about just a couple of courses, along with issues in Current pandemic, you need to write a VERY BRIEF letter along with a copy of the transcript to the schools. Either all of them now or wait until acceptance and submit apology and info then as a “mea culpa”

Hi,

I know the general advice regarding high school activities is to only use them if we continued to do the activity later.
I attended a health sciences/medical sciences academy in high school which included a lot of introductory premed classes, volunteer work, and some clinical exposure. I also competed in a national health science org and placed at that level/was a state-level leader. I didn't end up continuing with the org through undergrad but only because I felt like I had done all that could be done there after high school.

I was thinking of including all this as one 'activity' on the application. Any advice?

Better to mention them in your PS than listing as an activity.
