    Does anyone know if I can find a preview of my submitted application? After going to the end of the application, I logged out by accident and wasn't able to go back and preview anything..I'm only able to see the submission signature page now.. :(

    Correct. If you paid with a credit card then you don't need the signature page.

    Obviously I have more than 6-8 hours of biology - just wondering if you guys stopped at that "minimum range" they've set, or if you guys continued to list all the courses you've taken for each category?

    *Edit: Nevermind, I'm just going to add the biology courses that I've taken with a lab. I guess I've gotten lazy the last couple weeks - these course prerequisite forms are getting annoying.

    just wondering anyone else's status on this b/c I submitted about a week ago and everything is marked as complete except for my letters of reference which have all been uploaded to AMCAS and i 'selected' the ones to send to that school a while ago also?? Have anyone else's references taken this long?

    It was only two letters for this school correct?
    Thanks everyone

    I have the same issue as well. I contacted admissions about it. Hopefully, I'll hear back from them soon.

    I received an answer from Admissions. This is regarding e-mails about an incomplete application due to missing letters of recommendation that are already uploaded to AMCAS...

    We download letters of recommendation from AMCAS once a week and we are scheduled to do a download within the next few days. If your letters are available, they will be added to your file shortly.

    You can check back later this week to confirm your application status by logging back into your account. We will also notify you with an email once your application is complete.

    Best,

    Perhaps they have not begun the first download of letters from AMCAS?

    Did they send you an email, or was it just marked on the status page as interview invite?

    I also received the missing items email, but when I logged into my status page today it says "Aug 03, 2011 LOR - PDF Load" does this mean they've received it, or they're still processing it?

    ye, mine are not downloaded yet either. I submitted on the first day that the secondary was released. Not sure what is going on, but I have a feeling that they will download my letters when all interview spots are full. I contacted them and they mentioned that they would be downloading letters over the next few days (e-mail on Monday).

    I was complete on the same day. Still no word, and I don't get their status page -_-

    what does it say under status for each of your LORs?

    and does anyone know what "LOR - PDF Load" means?

    Edit: CONGRATS! on the interview by the way, lol

    I'm curious about this too - my letters say the same. Does that mean they've loaded them from AMCAS? And did people get an actual complete e-mail from Upstate? All the boxes on the tracker thing are filled in for me, but complete radio silence on their end...

    Also, anyone know how receptive Upstate is to update letters if we haven't been invited to interview yet?

    And yes, congratulations to everyone getting an interview!! Best of luck! :luck:

    I think "LOR- PDF Load" means they have it in, and 252e77, I sent in an update before the interview invite

    Also, are we allowed to select a date to interview yet? I keep choosing a date, but I'll go back and visit the page and it says the interview date was not selected

    I selected one and the page confirms it. Are you sure you're clicking a date that's available? Otherwise that's strange...

    Thanks for the quick reply! Definitely good to know that they accept updates, I'm going to try to send them one soon to see if it makes a difference.

    Good luck on the interview!!:luck:

    is it worth it to send an update if i recently (2 weeks ago) resubmitted an original manuscript for publication?
