    Testing Center Error. Do I retake?

    I got a 22 AA and a 21 TS, but my testing computer shut off during the PAT and when it turned back on, I lost 6 minutes. So I only ended up scoring a 16 in that section. The ADEA says my only options are to either keep those scores or I could invalidate these scores and retake the whole thing...

    Potential Transcript Error on AMCAS

    So I submitted my AMCAS to be verified yesterday and I may have made a mistake inputting my courses. On my transcript, it says "Subject" (which BIOL, CHEM, etc is listed), and then "Course Number" (101, 102, etc). I did not include the BIOL part on my application, because it was technically...

    AACOMAS error

    Okay I'm pretty upset because AACOMAS messed up part of my application. Please tell me if you think this will prevent me from getting interviews: 5 of the courses on my transcript verification were marked as "lecture only" instead of "lecture and lab." Now you would think it's still obvious...

    Error in the online input of DAT score

    Hi: I made a mistake when I submit my application. When I entered my unofficial DAT score I mistakenly switched my Ochem and GenChem score. So my unofficial score does not match my official score. I called ADEA. They said they can't change it. Is that error matter? Should I contact the dental...

    Hello I've been an Ob/gyn resident for two months (in my country, a student who has already chosen a speciality is called resident), and I am scared! Don't get me wrong, I love ob/gyn, I love the OR, I love the speciality per sé. The problem is, there is this enormous pressure to learn, there is...

    My application was just verified and immediately I received a rejection from Touro saying I didn't meet the 3.0 requirement. I looked at my GPA calculations and AACOMAS messed up on the transcript entry (I paid for the service thinking that was the safer option) by not factoring out the courses...
