    Anyone else emailed AMCAS with the subject line "Application Status" ?

    Did anyone actually get a response?

    I've emailed them like 3 times in the past 3 weeks, and I still haven't got a response.

    I've tried sending one with "transcript status" three different times. Every two weeks, I get a canned response telling me to use the proper subject heading in my message (which is "transcript status" by the way).

    Gotta love AMCAS. The phone is really the only way to get information. If you can even get it that way...

    Writing "transcript verification" instead of "transcript status" as AMCAS requested in their email definitely works! I've written for weeks and heard no response, so I tried "transcript verification". I got an email back in two that was the most efficient thing I've ever seen AMCAS do!

    I sent an e-mail with the subject "Transcript Status" and got an answer back in about 5 days. Hopefully the answer was correct (that received my 2 transcripts).

    I emailed them two times about my transcripts....the first time I waited a couple of weeks before I emailed again and I waited another week. Finally I just emailed them and let them know how annoyed and disgusted I was and that I had already emailed them twice. I also put in there that they had already slowed the whole process down and that I didn't want my transcripts to hold it up also. They responded the next day....whether they were replying to my first email or not, I don't know. But it felt good to tell them what I thought.

    I e-mailed them with the subject line "transcript status" and it took forever for them to reply, but they finally did, saying they had all of my transcripts. By then, of course, I'd already called and gotten the information!
