    Several schools that I have applied to have written to me that they have just received my name from AMCAS and I have listed them as one of my choices. They have not received anything else from AMCAS and now want me to copy the AMCAS application and send it to them.

    My copy has all the schools that I am applying to, so should I send them that page or just leave it out ?. I am afraid that they might see all the other schools that I have applied to and might hold that against me. Any opinion is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm sure you can leave the school designations out... According to last year there was really only four pages to the app: The page w/info of address, post-sec, etc.... A page for the personal statement .... and a page or two for the info on classes and grades.

    Doesn't it indicate that the school designation is student copy?

    That's right. One of the footnotes at the very end of the printout says that the list of schools is "for your record only" and that "medical schools do not receive such a list" or something close to that. Later.

    Due to popular demand, I'll move this over to the Pre-Allopathic Forum. :D
