    I recieved an e-mail from Columbia today informing me that they have started reviewing my application but they do not have my MCAT scores! I recall a day back in April-April 21 to be exact- when I released my MCAT scores to Columbia. April-Sept---a mere 5 months. Yet another AMCAS screw-up. And of course I can't reach them now since they are on their Thurs. siesta. :mad: (At least I have my OSU interview to keep me warm)

    i dont think its an AMCAS screw up specifically, since Columbia is non-amcas...it is an error on the part of the AAMC. unfortunately, i think this is one problem we can't blame on amcas..

    Same exact thing happened to me. I designated Columbia as one of my non-amcas schools, and I got word from Columbia about two weeks ago that they never recieved it. I was then instructed to send an unofficial copy of my MCAT scores, which I did. Needless to say it is a bit perturbing the fact that I submitted money for this purpose.....

    Make copies of everything, write a letter to AAMC and attach the copies, and DEMAND a refund! It may not be a lot of $$$ involved, but the principle of the matter is worth a lot more.

    Dr. Suga, thanks for setting me straight on the AMCAS/AAMC matter. My brain has become scrambled with all of these A's M's and C's. But isn't AMCAS some evil division of AAMC in some way? Anyway, AAMC is also on my s**t list because they STILL owe me a refund for charging me for 2 more MCAT practice tests than I ordered (back in March!!!!)
    Is is crummy to hear that the same situation happened to others here regarding Columbia/MCAT score release. Why do we bother to designate those non-AMCAS if they are just going to ignore them?
