After sending paper AMCAS applications to many medical schools, interviewing at some of them, and feeling like everything is okay, AMCAS finds another way to foul everything up. I think. So I was "verified" the other day, whatever that means, and I noticed something alarming. I had spent a junior year abroad, and received letter grades for the classes I took there. My undergraduate college did not include these in my GPA, and neither did AMCAS prior to "verification". Well, guess what? The geniuses decided to include them, resulting in a discrepancy between what I thought was my GPA (which it is, according to standard practice) and my new, "verfied" GPA. So I will be making dozens of phone calls, spending yet more money because of AMCAS screw-ups. Ugh.
