    I spoke to my premed advisor yesterday, and he said that he spoke to the head of AMCAS, and she said that all applications have been put on hold due to technical difficulties. So, if your app is "active", it will be for quite a while..until they figure things out.

    One thing that I did when this happened last time, is whenever I got a secondary, I would print out my primary (verified or not) on double sided paper, and mail it out with my secondary. I think that helped me a ton and a month later, all of the schools requested that anyways.

    I don't understand....how could you have gotten a secondary without having your primary verified first?

    Well there it is.

    I knew sooner or later I'd regret submitting as late as I did.

    They still send out your name and address to schools you applied to, and you can also find some secondaries online.

    Hey everyone,

    AMCAS supposedly re-sent my app to Finch today, so there's some kind of electronic activity in da house.
