Hi! At my college each class counts as 1 course unit, how many semester hours is that? Thanks
every course, regardless of if it's a lab or whatever, counts exactly the same?
yes, welcome to the world of liberal arts colleges
well, here's the grade conversion guide. let's look through it and see what it says...
well, it doesn't exactly say anything.
I really don't know. how does your school calculate your GPA? just makes everything equal?
That's not how my liberal arts college did it. So labs didn't count for anything? Sucks for the science majors...
OP - everything will be equal...your school should have a conversion scale on back of your "official" transcript..
usually 1 credit unit = 4 hours...
I thought it was 3 hours?
If one course counts for 1.0 course units, I would assume a course with lab counts for 1.25 course units.
At least...that's how I know it.
This is the way that Duke does credits as well. (sucks that labs aren't any different from non lab classes but eh whatever) Our advisers sent us an email saying that AMCAS told them:
"Duke students should list their course credits as listed on their transcript and AMCAS will do the conversions."
This means that in the AMCAS application where it says "Credit Hours", you enter 1.0 for a 1 course credit course, 0.5 for a 0.5 for a 0.5 course credit course, etc.
So basically AMCAS converts it. (though I don't know if that is for all schools or just Duke, ask your premed adviser; that is their job)
