Applying to Top Med Schools with AP Credit?
I was wondering if any of y'all have had the same troubles I have had this cycle. I believed my high schools advisors when they told me to take as many AP credit's as possible, among them AP Chemistry, Physics, English, Calc, and Stats. The extra credits I came in let me double major and minor, however now I'm beginning to see a big problem. Among the schools I am applying to, it looks like schools like Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Cornell all have problems with certain AP credit classes. I... Applying to Top Med Schools with AP Credit?

MOOC for intro to psych credit
Hey everyone, I've signed up for the free intro to psych course on Coursera to fill a credit requirement for some SMP apps. I never took it in undergrad.
