I called the 202-828-0600 number to check on my Transcripts that were sent last week...and it still says waiting on transcripts...

I have been on hold for 45 minutes.....

How long have you had to hold??

Well, I called when I was originally applying in '03...still on hold...and now its '06...and I'm 24 now. This is why I am a non-trad. Damn.

Just kidding. When I called them in June, I had to hold for about 15 minutes. :)

Thanks...I finally got through...only to (of course I knew this before calling) hear the guy say that it takes 5-7 business days for them to update transcripts being recieved...so he said it should be up by the 19th...he said call again if it isn't updated...I laughed at him

I was waiting for 30 minutes...then, while on hold I read this thread and got the hell off the phone. I have better things to do with my time. Slowasses.

if i were AMCAS, i would have a number on the options menu when u call that says "if you are wondering about the status of your transcript, please press 9".

i think i've literally read about 50 threads of people wondering where their transcripts are. (including mine!)

I called at 9am, right when they opened, and was on hold for 20 minutes. When I called at 8:58 it wouldn't get me through to an agent, so they must open them up at exactlly 9 - and people must be calling immediately!

AMCAS is the medical equivalent of New York City's DMV

I think things are especially bad right now because of the MCAT deadline. I was on hold for ~40 minutes both times yesterday I called. I wish they had an online chat service like some companies.

sucks for y'all's phone bills. 45mins on long distance/cellphone mins is a monumental waste to curb your neuroses. haha but who am i to judge. then again, if you're like me and call from your work (which has free long distance for you), kudos.
