Good or stupid to list a required lab course on one's CV as part of research experience?
Yes, I realize that it was not a graduate course--as you are not in grad school yet (as previously mentioned), so it's highly unlikely (albeit not impossible) that you have taken such coursework. The point being that you tailor your CV to the needs of the submission. If you are applying to graduate school, then you are obviously going to highlight pre-grad school (i.e., undergrad) experience which is obviously going to include your pre-grad/UG coursework. This information IS listed in your transcripts which are also submitted, so it may be looked at anyway, but then again, it also quickly highlights relevant PSYC related courses that indicate at least your exposure to the basics of research (which some students are not aware of) and possibly other relevant areas/courses that would be helpful in your stint as a future grad student. Of course, reporting UG courses once you're in grad school is likely not a good idea!Yeah, the labratory course was an advanced labratory course - but it wasn't a graduate course. I dunno. I think it's strange to put on the CV. But it was an advanced research lab course so some of my friends feel justified in writing it on their CV. I dunno. I can't think of any particular skills I gained that went above any of my other courses.
