    Got another challenge for you guyz...

    1)on the application where it asks you about filling in course codes, what if the course you took at your univeristy/college does not match any of the ones listed? do you just put it under others and still count it as science GPA if it has the symbol next to it?

    2)For those of you with letter service in your school, do you just sent the letter of recommendation matching card to the letter service or what? how does that work?

    Thanks!!

    Sefuro,

    In regards to the course codes, just choose the closest posssible match. AADSAS doesn't care about the specific courses that you took, they just want to make sure they calculate your GPAs correctly. If you took a science course, then match it with the closest possible science course and AADSAS will take care of figuring out your GPAs. Dental schools will have your transcripts and be able to see what specific courses you took (beyond pre-reqs) if they care to.

    Giving the letter of rec. matching card to the letter service is all that needs to be done (although you can go the extra mile and hassle them to make sure it actually gets sent out)!
