I attended Hofstra University from 2003 to 2007. I started with 15 credits, 12 of which came from Advanced Placement (AP) exams in high school. Although Hofstra's website doesn't have a table for this, I looked online at how many credits other colleges would have given me for the same scores on the same AP exams and here is what I found (how many credits I would have gotten): Hofstra*: 12 Binghamton: 12 Stony Brook: 12 Adelphi: 9 (Adelphi is located near Hofstra) Syracuse: 9 Centenary: 6 Belmont: 6 Gonzaga: 3 Penn State: 10 Northern Colorado: 9 Wisconsin-Milwaukee: 12 Stetson: 7 Georgia State*: 9 Virginia Commonwealth*: 15 North Carolina-Wilmington*: 15 Old Dominion*: 6 James Madison*: 7 Citadel: 15 George Mason*: 6 Towson*: 9 Delaware*: 6 Northeastern*: 12 William & Mary*: 3 I looked at every school in the Colonial Athletic Association (denoted with a * above) which is where Hofstra plays sports and found information for eleven of the schools (I couldn't find information for Drexel). I also look at twelve other schools. The mean for the 22 schools other than Hofstra was exactly 9 credits, so I got 3 more credits than the mean of the other schools. Did other people know how big a difference there would be? Is it surprising? Is it fair?
