I'm wondering if you all know if the preliminary report (which I participated in this...

    Scribe friend didn't submit community college transcript, didn't get caught.

    Simply reporting a real-world experience, as I have seen it debated on here whether AMCAS can/will find out. Not salty about it or anything. - This was a year of Dual Enrollment. - He said he made decent grades there, so it probably wouldn't effect anything. - Not sure if his University...

    Accused of Plagiarism after submitted AMCAS and secondaries.

    Hey guys, So I was just accused of plagiarizing a summary of a research article.

    References in Psych Reports?

    Does anyone include references in their neuropsych reports? If so, I'm imagining the in-text citations are standard APA formatting but where would you list the reference section (before or after signature) and is that in standard APA format? Any help is appreciated.

    IHC denials

    There's been an increase in our denials for 88342s and 88341s from CMS, which they explained was due to our report not documenting the "why" of different stains performed on different specimens.

    Sending DAT scores to schools

    I emailed AADSAS earlier today to make sure they had my DAT scores and just received an email from them saying that I should be sending DAT scores through ADA to each school individually. Last I checked, this costs $35 per official report. AADSAS has my scores so I don't know why I would have to...
