    Ok, so I'm talking to another applicant in my class today, telling her to check her AMCAS app. for her August scores.

    She tells me to not bring that word up in front of her as she submitted her app. in mid-July and still hasn't been verified.

    I was surprised and told her that I submitted August 23rd and was verified Sept. 27. My transcripts didn't arrive to DC until 9/10.

    What's the freaking deal with AMCAS? Are they doing the reverse order verification thing again?

    Whenever I think about what goes on at the AMCAS offices, I think of that Capital One card commercial with the chimps...:laugh:

    Your friend should seriously call them and see what the deal is. Unless something was seriously screwed up with her transcript, she should have been verified a long time ago.

    I agree. She should definitely find out whassup. Maybe they'll "bump" her, SDN-style. :)

    Yikes the AMCAS nightmare.

    For those of us who applied last year (the first year they went online) the mere sight of the word AMCAS sends chills up our spine.

    I had to get my lawyer involved last year in order for them to verify my application. I submitted on June 23 and wasn't processed until sometime in September. Meanwhile people who submitted in July and August and Septemeber were being processed before me. it was a NIGHTMARE:mad: :mad: :mad:

    All I can suggest is a phone call to AMCAS to make sure they have all they need for the application. I'm sure this year you won't have to be on hold for 3 hours long distance like we had to last year.+pissed+ +pissed+
