Would it be advisable to put a psychology research class in the work/activities section? It was not published the class was a semester long and as a class we researched body dissatisfaction just last semester.

I would not put down a class you took as an AMCAS entry, no, unless it involved some sort of major project you ended up presenting a poster about.

I would slightly disagree with @efle on this. If the applicant has no other research and the Instructor/PI writes a letter, I would include it. Research may be a check box or add a point in evaluation/scoring.

Is a "research class" another way of saying research-for-credits? I was thinking of a class my undergrad offered about experimental methods in psych...was def not research experience, not by a mile.
