at least if they're slow cashing the check, you can cancel it after your first acceptance.Originally posted by SMW
If your transcripts didn't arrive until July, it made no difference that you submitted your application in June. It can't be processed/verified until they have your transcripts. Boston was notorious last year for taking forever after taking your money. Their admissions office appears to be operating in the dark ages given the appearance of that "letter" they send out asking for your check. So it's not strange at all that it took them a while to download your info from AMCAS (it's not always AMCAS's fault when it takes a while for the info to get out). And they get absolutely swamped with apps because their averages are a little lower which leads people to believe they are a "safety" school. There are no "safeties" in the med school admissions process. I was admitted to 5 schools, waitlisted at 6 and totally ignored by Boston last year (aside from their cashing my check. And even that took quite a while!).

but monster2 is allowed to attack people without consequence (Lee tells us to ignore him and closes that thread) because he supposedly comes from a poor background and goes to Hah-vud for undergrad.
