I saw this petition going around today and wanted to bring it to SDN since many of us are facing issues with transcripts and delays with processing, especially with COVID-19 and BLM. Please sign this to help out our fellow premeds during this unprecedented time

AMCAS has a contracted obligation to the schools to provide this service and the agreement was begrudgingly pushed to July 10th. I wrote about this issue early in this crisis and my concerns that AMCAS would be unable to fulfill their obligation to students. However, they have made the decision that potential lawsuits from the medical schools were much more of a threat than potential lawsuits from applicants as force majeure (unforeseen circumstance) would protect them.

My university is not an ePDF sender, but we were allowed to email PDFs of our transcripts just for this cycle. In case they decide not to push back the transmission date (they most likely won't), maybe ask your school's registrar to contact AMCAS and see if this is an option?

I wish AMCAS did the same thing TMDSAS is doing this year, which is to transmit data to schools without transcripts and then request transcripts from all students on Aug 1.
