So, I've been receiving emails from medical schools recruiting me based on my minority status.....

The issue is that I am not a minority or disadvantaged in any way! I definitely did not indicate that on AMCAS, or any of my secondaries, or the MCAT. I'm white as a snowflake and while I reside in a *technically*medically underserved community, I have been marking that I never felt personally medically underserved.


I really don't want medical schools to get the impression that I've lied at any point, and I don't want to be on the registry unfairly. Is this something I contact AMCAS about? Individual schools?

That's comforting!

I also got a letter from Harvard......where I didn't even apply.

^ I got a letter from Harvard as well. In addition to the Email from GW today. I'm white as heck and definitely didn't indicate I was disadvantaged. I think there was some kind of mistake because I also didn't apply to Harvard.

Ah, this is making me feel much better thanks! I brushed off one incident, but after both of them I started to get concerned haha.
