I know someone who called AMCAS this morning and talked to one of the specialists. During the conversation, which was rather heated, she revealed that there was a bug in the database. This bug apparently verifies applications in the reversed order in which they were submitted; it backward verifies!!! So, for all the people who submitted their applications late, they are the ones that get verified first. The ones that submitted their applications at the start are suffering from this "disease." Their applications are considered old, but not verified (unless you call and make hell). It also appears that AMCAS has squashed this bug a few days back or so and the disease is "supposed" to be gone. That's my latest information regarding this whole mess.
