    For those of you who are verified, how long did it take to get verified from when you recieved the red X's?

    Only one day for me :) But I suspect the average is more like a week. I got lucky I guess.

    It depends on a number of factors, especially whether or not they need to make corrections to your coursework when they compare your app to your transcripts. Some people who got the red X's not long after submitting have been waiting a long time for final verification. I think this is because AMCAS has been threatened with legal action for processing apps out of order, so now they're being more careful.

    I sent an email to Nancy Tillinghast and receieved an email from her saying I had completed the verification process. But I never saw any red x's nor does a processed date appear. So what's first notification of verificiation, then processing? I also have a change notification button. Thoughts?

    I've never heard of this situation. I'd reply to her e-mail and ask how you can be verified without a date processed appearing on the app. Do you have marks (blue slashes and X's) after your coursework?

    This is the email I recieved after the red X's, does this mean it has been verified or is it just saying my app. has been submitted?

    Well, it appears to mean you've just submitted your app. Some people have been getting these e-mails more or less daily ever since they submitted. Others, like me, have received this e-mail only twice -- when they submitted and when they were processed. I'd say it probably means you're processed, but the only way to know for sure that you're processed is to have marks after your coursework (blue slashes and X's) and a date after "Date Processed" in the upper right corner of your app in the "Print Application" screen.
