    I submitted AMCAS Sept. 28, and am still waiting to be verified...I know this is nothing compared to what some people have endured, but are there people still waiting to be verified??

    thanks

    Hi Gabbers22,
    I just got verified...my application was submitted in July, and I'm still waiting for it to be processed.

    Ummm... Nicholas, I think that you're in the verification process, but you can't really say you're verified until you have that date after Date Processed. You have the red X's, right? What about blue slashes, etc. after your coursework? If you have all this, you'll probably get that Date Processed date pretty soon, although there really is no predicting AMCAS. Best of luck to you in this horrible process! :) And to you too, gabbers22! :)

    ok, this might make me sound absolutely ignorrant, but what exactly defines "verified" and how would one know if he/she has been verified???

    Is this something you only get to hear about once you apply?? I am assuming it's online, and you check to see the status of your application. This info might come in handy next year when I apply and hope to be "verified"...whatever that is.

    Don't forget about the problems on the other end where schools are not getting the correct information with the verified applications they receive from AMCAS. The situation is so bad that some schools (U of Vermont and U of Nevada come to mind) have sent letters to all applicants saying that since they can't trust the information from AMCAS you must send the information to them directly which means they are bypassing AMCAS' service totally. This means the fees we paid to AMCAS for that service were wasted -- AMCAS served no purpose at all in the application process to some schools. The ineptitudes of an organization that has received over $14,000,000 in application fees since June is truly, truly remarkable. Fourteen million dollars in less than six months and they don't even have a toll-free telephone number. They take weeks to respond to a simple e-mail. They keep people on hold for hours on end playing the same CD on the hold music over, and over again. Incompetence at a level that I have never seen. It's not just criminal, it is disgusting.

    Holy lord you guys!!!!
    I am feeling ambivalent about even sending my AMCAS now!! I feel bad for y'all.....it all sound like a grand money making scheme,with AMCAS being the dragon of it all.

    ::Sigh:: Question--knowing that I can be *very* assertive when I want to be, how much can I really bother AMCAS with calls etc, and yet have nothing to lose? I bet there must be a point where it actually hurts your app to call them.

    Then again, being a chick might help if I meet up with that Melville guy who could help me process my app. (joke!) But in all seriousness, do you guys have any advice for those of us applying in 2003 besides DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH!!

    thanks,

    ooo, oooo! I just got verified over the weekend! So what.. you ask? Well, I'm EDP and submitted July 5th!!! That's What! I emailed Nancy two weeks ago, and behold, she emailed me right back and said she put it right in to be verified! I'm astounded. Luckily, USA is really cool and gave an acceptance back in Sept, figuring that AMCAS was too screwed up to really count...
