Research as extracurricular
So I took AP Research last year. For that class we spent the year writing a 4-5 thousand word academic research paper. I ended up getting my paper published in a scientific journal. Should I include this on my application? If so, how? I was thinking maybe mentioning this as research on my extracurricular activities section. But does this count as an extracurricular if it was for a class?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
In the "writing" section of the extracurriculars, one of the tiers mentions having a paper published in a scientific journal. While your paper was part of a class, I'd imagine getting published still counts as an extracurricular achievement. If College Vine considers it so, then colleges will as well. I'd mention it.
