    Has anyone who submitted their AMCAS app on 6/25 or later received word that it has begun to be processed?

    Who has missing mcat scores on their printout? (Mine are now blank?!?) Seems like nothing has gone right with this endless load of crap we have to repeatedly deal with. I'm just waiting for them to tell me something unfortunate occurred with my file.

    Originally submitted June 24. However, re-submitted July 3 and that's what appears on my printout. No change verification process button or process date.

    rxfudd, they sent you an email about it? How long ago? I've emailed twice and called twice, with problems with a couple of transcripts. I have never heard back by email. Thanks for your info.

    Yeah, they sent me what looked like a generic, automated email - here is the actual email I received:

    TRANSCRIPT STATUS REPORT

    This notification concerns official transcripts that support your AMCAS
    application. Please review the status of your transcripts as described below.
    Your immediate attention is required for any which are noted as Missing,
    Incomplete or Unofficial. We cannot complete the processing of your application
    until all required official transcripts have been received.

    Following is a key for transcript status codes appearing next to College Name
    and Years of Attendance. Please contact the colleges to confirm the status and
    mailing date of your request.

    Status
    Code Definition

    M Missing; not received by AMCAS
    I Academic information on transcript incomplete
    D Exception request denied; official transcript required.
    N Transcript not official or illegible or expired; official replacement
    required


    The help text of the AMCAS web application provides specific information on
    official transcript requirements. Please review these instructions before
    contacting AMCAS. If you have attended any schools not listed below, or if
    there appear to be errors on this report, please contact AMCAS as soon as
    possible via E-mail [email protected] or telephone (202) 828-0600.

    You are responsible for ensuring all official transcripts have been received by
    AMCAS prior to your application deadlines. AMCAS requires approximately 15
    business days from receipt of all official transcripts to verify your
    application. Please be sure to contact AMCAS if you do not receive a
    Transmittal Notification within four weeks. You are encouraged to check
    regularly the status of your official transcripts and application by calling
    202-828-0600.

    College Name Years of Attendance Transcript Status

    I called in JUNE and verified that my transcripts were received by AMCAS (which they were). Looks like I'm going to have to call tomorrow...

    rxfudd, did you ask for a transcript exception. I did but I got the same email you did and it was denied my request. I did a study abroad program (only two classes) not affiliated with a US university so I didn't have a transcript sent. What was your exception request regarding?

    I read on another thread that you can't trust the "print app" button as much as we thought. One person called and found that their grades had been verified, although the print version didn't reflect this. :)

    I called AMCAS at 9AM EST this morning and waited only 17 minutes. The specialist verified that my transcripts were indeed in their hands and that I should "disregard the email" I received. More fun from the people at AMCAS!

    Wow! figure five, that's only 3 weeks, which is exactly how long their procedures & policies says they will take once you've submitted if they have your transcripts. Could be things are looking up. Or maybe you're just a lucky duck! Are you on quarter or semester system?

    actually AMCAS has been saying that it will take 4-6 weeks to process your app, not 3. so figure five is pretty damn lucky. it's now been six weeks since i submitted and my grades still haven't been verified. i called AMCAS yesterday and the guy told me there was nothing he could do.
