    I'm not sure if this has been posted yet but this is from AMCAS via my school's pre-med advisor.

    We've advised all AMCAS applicants that in response to bio-terrorism
    concerns, United States Postal Service (USPS) delivery to Washington
    D.C. has been delayed for security reasons, and in some cases re-routed
    from the main post office. Transcripts, or other mail sent to the AAMC
    (such as MCAT Score Release Requests or Score Reports) during the past
    three weeks may still be undelivered, and may never be delivered.

    Applicants who have submitted transcript(s) within this time frame can
    re-send their transcript(s) to AMCAS, and to ask registrars shipping
    these transcripts to consider using alternate mail carriers, such as
    Federal Express. We also ask that applicants submit all transcripts to
    AMCAS as far in advance of their deadline(s) as possible

    To help minimize to impact of such delays, we have extended the
    following transcript deadlines:

    +++For schools whose application deadline is October 15 and transcript
    deadline is October 29, we will extend the transcript deadline date two
    more weeks to November 12.

    +++For schools whose application deadline is November 1 and transcript
    deadline is November 15, we will extend the transcript deadline date two
    more weeks to November 29.

    For additional information on actions taken by the United States PostalService, visit the USPS web site at www.usps.gov
