Members don't see this ad.
I received an email from AMCAs that they have received all the official transcripts, now the question is what do I have to do in order for them to calculate my "GPA"? So this way if there's something wrong or they're lacking certain information, I wouldn't have to find out about it in the middle of june.

Thanks

Umm... when are you trying to apply? It's a little too late to be applying for the 2007 cycle and a little too early to be applying for the 2008 cycle.

You won't get your calculated GPA until your AMCAS is verified, which won't be until you officially submit your AMCAS, which won't be until after June 1st.

That's not possible. AMCAS opens for submission the first week of June.

If you are filling out the AMCAS app now for the 2008 cycle, you're going to have to redo all of it when they open the applicable application up June 1. You could type all your responses now, copy and paste it into a word document, and then copy/paste it back June 1. If you really wanna. :D

Is this a serious post or what? You won't be complete on June 1st no matter what you do. If you are still in school you need to send your latest transcript anyway. If you have your personal statement done already then good for you. Just have it ready to submit sometime in the early summer and you are far ahead a vast majority of the other people for the 2008 application cycle. If you have your LORs ready then you can relax until late summer.

They probably thought your transcripts are for this cycle. You might have to resend your transcripts when you apply in June.

Thank you everyone for replying.
I originally assumed that I can just start filling out all the information right now for the 08 cycle, looks like I have to save all the work in ms word so it won't disappear in a couple of months
