    I found an omission on my coursework section. General Chemistry II is not listed. I reported the error to AMCAS and received a confirmation which said it would take a few days to process my request. That was one week ago.

    I have a few secondaries already submitted, and I'm also working on a bunch.

    Should I write a brief letter to each admissions committee explaining the situation? If so, any suggestions on wording?

    I think the protocol is that you make any changes to AMCAS, you notify amcas and then you also notify all the schools of that change so i think you should send them all some kind of letter just to give them a heads up.

    I'd keep calling amcas and send letters to the schools if I were you.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I wrote to each school.
