Hello pre-medonnas,

I recently submitted my primary application through AMCAS and discovered that the reason it did not get verified was due a LOC error. I need to change the author of my letter packet but I cannot find an option to do so after I have already submitted my primary. Any tips so I can get this process moving along a little faster?

verification only refers to the AMCAS application and not the letters submitted to AMCAS letter service. Is the error the authors listed on the primary application itself? if so you will have to contact AMCAS to correct

The problem is with the individual responsible for putting together my letter packet. I listed the incorrect author for my letter packet, not an individual letter. Do you still recommend I contact AMCAS?

Thank you!!

I dont think you really have to worry about it.

What you could do instead is create a new entry with a new AMCAS ID for the letter packet and then "cancel" the original one under the "letter no longer being sent" procedure (see page 62 https://aamc-orange.global.ssl.fast...278-2edb3998a216/amcas_instruction_manual.pdf
