    Just got this email from the WUSTL MSTP program:

    Dear MSTP Applicant:

    Due to reported discrepancies from AMCAS concerning GPA's and MCAT scores,
    we are contacting you to verify your scores. To ensure a fair and complete
    review of your application to the MSTP at Washington University, please
    email us ([email protected]) your GPA and MCAT scores as reported to AMCAS.

    Thank you for your time,

    AMCAS sent me this one a while ago:

    To YOU,

    We erased your application and our specialists can only read sanskrit. Please translate your application. Thank you for your patience.

    From,
    US

    PS: Your credit card has been rejected. :eek: :mad:

    Talking about screwing up, AMCAS got my entire application correct when it sent out my primaries to 5 of the schools that I applied to at this point.

    Except for one thing.

    It's kinda important.


    My name.

    5 schools so far have sent me information addressed to a "GEORGE V KAKOULIDES" not my real name. I don't know who this person is, but it's not me :). I was wondering why I couldn't access the UPenn secondary. (It requires that you enter your last name) Same thing has happened (after I contacted every school I haven't gotten a secondary from, thanks AMCAS for the extra hassle) at Jefferson, VCU and a couple others, I've lost track of which ones at this point.

    All of you anxious pre-meds out there, still waiting to get your secondaries might want to consider checking up on this if you suspect something might be wrong. I never would have known if I hadn't called UPenn to find out what was up!

    And if GEORGE V KAKOULIDES is reading this message, please feel free to contact me!

    Best wishes, everyone,
    Chunk-ee

    Hi baylor21 ... I got the same email. I tell you I'm begining to dread reading my emails for fear of discovering yet another "mistake" from AMCAS.
    By the way, Do you happen to know if Wash U wants a full GPA breakdown (like the one on the AMCAS app) or just an overall science/nonscience GPA.

    (If AMCAS was in charge of interviews...)

    Dear Applicant,

    On behalf of the <insert school>, I am happy to inform you that you have been granted an interview. In order to save costs on travel and hotel accomodations, all interviews will be conducted by phone.

    Your interview date and time will be Sunday, September 22nd at 2:00am PDT. You are required to call from a pay phone located in the most ghetto part of your neighborhood. Refer to our website to access our special database listing ghetto areas throughout the country.

    Your phone interview will last approximately 45 minutes and will be conducted by two individuals: A faculty member and a Viennese Mountain Chicken. Communication over the phone must be done using Filipino Sign Language.

    If you are unfamiliar with Filipino Sign Language, inform <insert school>, we will provide you with a telegraph so that you can conduct your interview via morse code.

    If you are unfamiliar with either Filipino Sign Language or morse code, then you're screwed.

    By the way, you may be aware of the saying "There's no such thing as a stupid question."

    The faculty at <insert school> believes that this statement is absolutely bulls*it. Thus, you are not allowed to ask any questions at the end of your interview.

    Once again, congratulations on your interview, and we look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,


    Eat S*it, M.D.
    Director of Admissions
    ---------------------------------------------
    p.s. - I sincerely apologize to hearing impaired Filipinos (Pinoy pride, baby!), those that use morse code as their primary language, residents of so-called ghetto neighborhoods (I live in a ghetto neighborhood, myself), and avid worshipers of the Viennese Mountain Chicken. I know that some of my comments were way out-of-line.
    --------------------------------------------- :rolleyes:

    SMW,

    MCW...I start August 2002 (I deferred). Did you apply there?

    If you do end up going to MCW, and want to find me, just look for the Asian guy (yeah, that really narrows it down!)

    -The SaucyAZN Sensation :D :cool: :eek:
