Pre-meds: Do you know how the AMCAS will classify your courses?

There is nothing worse than working hard in a course you thought would "count" for medical school admissions requirements only to find out the AMCAS application does not classify said course in the way you expected. Be an educated pre-med! Review the AMCAS course classification guide published by the AAMC before you sign up for classes. And if you are applying to medical school this cycle, be sure the courses you have taken count the way you think. Because if they don't, you may need to take a summer course or change your future classes to meet the requirements.
