    Scooby,

    I got one X marked next to a course that is a noncredit seminar class for a special program I'm enrolled in. Looking back now, I should not have even put it in my courses but its listed on my transcript so I thought that AMCAS would think I was trying to subvert the system if I didnt list it.

    I emailed AMCAS asking them exactly what X and O marks mean; whether that means your app is on hold or if you have to redo your courses or send in another transcript. Havent gotten a response yet.

    I thought about sending them a note thru the online "change notification process" feature but it states that its just like regular email so I figured I would avoid recertifying/resubmitting my app and just email them the regular way.

    I will let you know if they respond.

    If you look at the bottom of your printed AMCAS application it explains what the symbols mean.

    / - any course verified without correction;
    X - any course verified with correction;
    O - any course listed on the Academic Record but not reflected on an official transcript; format corrections were not required;
    OX - any course listed on the Academic Record but not reflected on an official transcript; format corrections have been made;
    =/ - a type of coursework not meant to be verified

    What do you mean by adding AP scores? Like the specifics scores we got on each test? Does that mean we are supposed to send in an AP transcript? I was told we didn't have to . . . .
