Just in case anyone is wondering, it is not required to send in the transcript verification form for aamc. Of course, if you are able to, then by all means use it; just don't be nervous or fearful if your school doesn't attach it or if you're doing it online

I just had my school send mine via an online service last week. The only way I could send the transcript form was to fax it or mail it in. Since I was too lazy, I just added my AMCAS ID into the mailing section of the "TO" address

tldr; If you can't attach the transcript request form to your transcripts, don't worry.


When you send them, use this as the mailing addresss

AMCAS, attn: Transcripts
AAMC Med School Appl Svcs
AMCAS ID: 12345678
P.O. Box 57326
Washington, DC 20037

This is EXACTLY what I did for both my of schools' transcripts and they both arrived within a couple days and I received a notification from amcas about both.

I did the same thing. With the same results. Just include your AMCAS id# in the TO address and you're set.

My stupid registrar only mailed the request form to AMCAS and not an official transcript. I can't wait to get them on the phone on Tuesday.
