    So I changed my contact info thru AMCAS like 10 days ago. However, the schools still haven't downloaded it. They say that's the only way that we're allowed to change it. I know waitlists are gonna start moving soon, so what the hell do I do? Most ppl are pulled off waitlists via phone right? Anyone in a similar situation?

    I would say this is a great situation to write each school a personalized letter about how your still very hopefull that you'll get pulled off the waitlist, and how you would love to be there next year. You then mention how you just changed your address on AMCAS, and your scared that it won't get through anytime soon, so here is my new address in case you guys don't get the AMCAS download for a while. Thanks for your continueing consideration of my application.

    Sorry, switched into the mode as if I was writing the letter.

    Thanks bro, I'm gonna send one out tomorrow. My question is though what if they still don't change it and wait for the actual AMCAS transmission? Some admissions offices are pretty lazy as I'm sure you've noticed. I don't want them calling the old number if I happen to get in off a waitlist. They won't be able to get in touch with me, and I dunno if they'll even bother trying to figure out why. They'll probably just go to the next person on the list. My friend last year was given 2 hours to decide on a school after being accepted off the waitlist, so they don't mess around!

    I see you are trying to speak Spanish (by the title of your thread). I think you should send a letter to each school that you are waitlisted in telling them your change in contact info. Also, try calling each school and tell them your situation. By the way, I think UM notifies you through mail. Hope this helps.
