Wasssuuuuppppp all you 2008 applicants?!? I figured since today is the day that AACOMAS and AMCAS let us begin working on our applications, I would start a thread so we can all go through this together. Anyone want to hop on board? To begin with, I have a question: My father passed away when I was very young and I do not have contact with my mom. Do I have to include their information on the "parent background" section? Will it look bad if I don't include their information? Will it put my application at a disadvantage? Any information is greatly appreciated! Best of luck to us all!
