Ok, so I finally got around to calling Stanford about the units thing. So for anyone who's having issues converting credits into Stanford units, here's how it works....

If you're school is normal and has 2 semesters and uses credits... then...

units per course = (2 X credits per course)/3

So for instance, your Introductory bio I and II courses that were 4 credits each per semester... are 2.66 units each.

I know it's wierd... the lady at the admissions office had to explain it to me like 4 times...

It all has to do with the fact that Stanford has three "semesters" instead of two... yet they call it a "quarter" system for some reason...
