The classification of this course will be based solely on the primary content of the course itself. If the primary content of the Stats for Behavioral Sciences course qualifies as BCMP, the course will be classified as a BCMP course.does "Stats for Behavioral sciences" count in BCPM?
I'm actually pretty sure it's just a person glancing at it and applying reasonable (very generous, really) judgementIMy guess is that there's an automatic algorithm that cross-checks your classification against the departments the course is listed for in the course catalog and then flag it if there's an inconsistency.
They have now linked to the National Student Clearing House system which searches and/or store virtually all college catalogs in the country. Furthermore, making an educated guess on how they have implemented the system, each primary application runs thru software that compares all courses and titled listed to descriptions in the linked college catalogs. This likely has a rules-based/knowledge-based engine that has a confidence score for each listed course at to BCPM or OA as a percentage of likelihood. This may check things like department, terms in the description, etc. It would have various levels of "flags" say score of 65% is automatically accepted, score of 64%-41% need human checking with course in question and its college catalog description popping up automatically for review and , scores of 40% or less gets automatically reclassified. We shall see how this new system worksI'm actually pretty sure it's just a person glancing at it and applying reasonable (very generous, really) judgement
Just because AMCAS will accept a psych stats course as BCPM, does not mean an individual medical school will accept it as fulfilling a math requirement. This came up at a admissions conference a few years ago where one of the Michigan schools would not take psych stats or business stats as fulfilling the requirementpsych stats was the only math course i took in college
