Hey guys,
My undergrad school sent out my transcript to AMCAS on July 19th...2 weeks ago tomorrow, and AMCAS still hasn't received it. This already messed up my plans for EDP, but how much longer should I wait before asking my university to send it again?

Called this morning. Woman was pretty rude and adamant about how it wasn't received yet.

They're probably really busy so don't take it personally. It's very easy to be rude to someone you don't know, especially if you don't see them. If you get mad, you will only ruin your own mood. Just ask your school to send it in again but they might have gotten it already. When I sent in my transcript, they told me that they received it 4 days earlier. Patience is key, I'm sure you will be fine ^^
