    Hi guys. How soon did you get secondary (non-screened of course) invites after submitting your AMCAS? Also, how long is AMCAS taking to verify transcripts nowadays?

    Thanks!

    I got Pritzker two days after submitting AMCAS, GW and Penn State five days after, NYMC nine days after, and Hopkins in the mail about nine days after as well.

    From what it seems from the other threads, AMCAS is taking about 4-6 weeks to verify nowadays.

    Hope that helps :) .

    According to the thread about this, they're at about 7/18 submissions.

    Thanks. Does anyone know how long it takes between the time your transcripts are sent to your school and AMCAS acknowledges receiving them? Is it instantaneous or? I ask because I fear having my application only further delayed by not pestering the flakes in my registrar's office.

    Thanks!
