    I just got this from AMCAS, I asked them about my application status. I submitted July 7.

    "Hi, in response to your email regarding the status of your AMCAS application, your application was sent out on the week of August 13,01.

    Please let us know if you have any additional concerns

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Hmm, but my application when viewed does not show a processed date, or red x's or anything. AMCAS is wierd....

    I was also told this. I was told by Dee at AMCAS that this is the unverified copy that they mailed to the schools.

    Could have been a typo, though.

    I doubt it! I was told something similar over the phone, but I just called my 1st choice school, and all they have is the 1-page "summary".

    I got the following email. I would um be careful about heeding the advice of AMCAS.

    Dear AMCAS applicant,

    AMCAS has started to receive numerous questions regarding
    post-submission changes to an application. Below you will find all the
    information you will need to successfully make any desired changes. We
    hope you find this information helpful.

    Best wishes during you medical school admissions process.

    AMCAS

    Requesting a Post-Submission Change:
    Certain items in the AMCAS application allow for change after you have
    submitted your application to AMCAS; others do not. To determine
    whether a particular change can be made, view the AMCAS Application
    outline at http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas/application.htm

    IMPORTANT NOTE: YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE UPDATED UNLESS YOU
    RE-CERTIFY AND RE-SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY APPEAR ON
    YOUR PRINTED APPLICATION AS THOUGH YOUR CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE.

    Biographic Changes:
    Allowed biographic data changes (see above link to the AMCAS
    Application Outline) can be made in the application itself by the
    applicant, and do not require that the applicant submit a change request
    to AMCAS. For example, if you wish to update you preferred email
    address, simply enter your new address on the application page,
    re-certify and re-submit your application.

    Academic Changes:
    If after reviewing by using your application's print option any
    corrections AMCAS has made to your application you wish to make a
    change, use the Change Notification Option on the vertical menu located
    on the left side of your application screen. This option allows you to
    send to AMCAS a request providing a thorough explanation of the change
    you wish to make. Allow at lease fifteen working days for AMCAS to
    review and/or process any change request . (Yeah right - wow...they must not have spell check, this is not the first spelling error I've seen) If necessary, AMCAS will:
    * Recalculate GPAs
    * Make corrections to the following course items if appropriate:
    Academic Status
    Course Type
    Transcript Grade
    Credit Hours Attempted
    AMCAS Grade

    AMCAS will not change or correct:
    * Course titles or numbers
    * Academic Year or Term
    * Corrections based on information that becomes available after you
    submit your application. This includes final grades for current/future
    courses, and grade changes submitted to your registrar.


    IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER, YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE UPDATED
    UNLESS YOU RE-CERTIFY AND RE-SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY
    APPEAR ON YOUR PRINTER APPLICATION AS THOUGH THIS CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE. :rolleyes:
