hey, mine too! i didn't think any other schools had it like this. unfortunately, all of my courses translated to 3.5 credits each -- even those science classes with 3 hours of class and 4+ hrs of lab/week. i think i got screwed... oh well! i'm hoping schools won't care that i actually only have 7 credits for 2 semesters of science courses. i'm guessing not.Originally posted by leila2
my undergrad used units instead of credits. everyone just had to take four classes per semester (4 units), which translated to 4 credits each for other (e.g. grad school) purposes. what sucked was that i could be in class 22 hours/week and it was considered the same as someone who was in class 12 hours/week because we were all taking 4 units. i'm guessing stanford means credits, but i would ask them to be sure.
Well... according to Lola and leila that's not always true... but thanks anyway.Originally posted by souljah1
what don't you get? one unit = one credit.

Stanford uses a "quarter system" that has 3 semesters.... yeah I know, that doesn't sound right, but that's what they call it.
