What is the best way to document coursework for a bachelor's degree for which I didn't actually do any coursework specifically for the bachelor's degree? I was able to repurpose undergraduate coursework I had done previously as prerequisites for a professional degree program plus some of the professional school coursework to get the bachelor's degree.

To further clarify, my schools attended in AMCAS looks something like this:

1) School A where I did pre-professional undergraduate coursework, no degree, August 2008 - May 2010
2) School B where I did professional graduate coursework, professional degree, August 2010 - May 2013
3) Same as School B, bachelor's degree in biomedical science, May 2018 - May 2018

Any coursework I would list under item 3 I will have already listed under items 1 and 2, plus the dates obviously wouldn't line up. Do I just not list any coursework for my BS^2 (as I like to call it)?

If your Bachelors is made up of only "transferred" coursework from prereq at school A and professional at school B, then no coursework would be listed for bachelors.
