Why is AMCAS lagging so much this year? Is it because they got that many applications? I mean some people who submitted the 1st day are still not verified that’s insane!

The neurotic premed arms race grows faster and faster... or in this case earlier

Anywho, enough about those other neurotic applicants. Will my application get verified in time to be transmitted June 28 if I submitted on June 7?!?

June 3rd here and I hope each submission day doesn't take 10 days to verify like May 30 is.

Anxious June 5 submitter here. I'm hoping that this lag is due to the day 1 rush of submissions and that applications submitted on or after day 2 will see some movement once they clear through the 5/30 queue.

Otherwise I'm not getting verified until sometime in mid-July at this rate.

On a side note, are the "hours" they calculate quarter or semester hours?

If you take a look at the 2018-2019 Verification Thread, you'll find that they started verifying day 2 applicants on the 12th day after applications opened. So technically we're still "on schedule" per last year's data. Regardless I'd also love to see some movement soon too as i submitted on the 5th and it seems questionable whether I'll make the first batch at this rate.

Do we have access to the 2018-2019 cycle's verification timeline data? I know we can look at the various comments in last year's thread, but I can't find the graph populated with data from form responses.

Welp, pack it up boys. They'll still be verifying May 30 apps when the next cycle opens

Edit - looks like the 5/31 gang is getting some love now? Curious why the tweet doesn't mirror that

Nope, not EDP, so it seems like things are finally picking up steam

I submitted mine June 1st 6:15 PM and it still says under review since yesterday.

Does that sound weird?

Stupid question- but what exactly should I be looking for to see if my application is "verified"? Right now mine says "AMCAS Processing is Complete" so will it say "verified" when it is done?
