    Hi again,

    I come from a school that is full year (sept to april) and is a 2 semestered system....fall and winter....full year courses run from fall to winter and half year courses are in the fall, or winter (as if you guys needed me to explain that :)

    In anycase, my school offers "credits" instead of semester hours...

    For example, a full year course such as Organic Chemistry is given a credit of 1.0. a half year course is given a credit of 0.5. You are considered a full time student if you take 5.0 credits in a given year.

    My question is that on the AMCAS it asks you whether credits/units are convertible to semester hours....does anyone know what I should put for this?

    I was under the impression that 1.0 credit equals 3 semester hrs......since for a 1.0 credit course, there are usually 3 hrs of lectures...

    thanks
