AMCAS Course Work
Prevent AMCAS from sending your application back.
*The Course Work videos are included in MDadmit Academy’s Complete AMCAS Course.
This is the section that causes pre-meds the most headaches. It’s long, it’s detailed, and it takes an understanding of exactly what AMCAS wants from you. Understanding this section before attempting to enter your courses is imperative.
Do you know:
- AMCAS will send back applications where coursework is entered incorrectly, severely delaying your application?
- How to enter courses taken outside the US or transferred to another institution?
- The AMCAS GPAs are almost always different from your home institutions’ GPAs?
There’s so much to talk about on the topic of AMCAS Course Work that Dr. Miller has broken it out into 2 separate videos.
These videos are a must watch for anyone wanting to avoid having AMCAS send the application back and who don’t want to spend hours pouring over the AMCAS Instruction Manual trying to figure out all of the nuances of course work entry.
AMCAS Coursework videos will cover:
- How to enter coursework so that AMCAS doesn’t send your application back
- How to link coursework to specific institutions
- How to enter AP, study abroad, college-level coursework taken in high school and other tricky course types
- How GPA is calculated and presented to medical school admissions committees
