    I totally messed up and accidentally sent a paper transcript via Clearinghouse without the request form nor my AMCAS ID..
    I'm not even sure if the copy has arrived at the PO box yet since it was sent out on May 22nd..
    Should I send another one with the form this time?
    I tried reaching out to AMCAS but couldn't get connected on the phone

    I don't even know how delayed my application will be because of this..
    Everything else on the application is complete except this.. :(

      My first thought was "call them", but since you tried already, i would just send one more copy and i think there is a spot there where you can put a comment, put in that "this is the second copy, first one was sent on may 22nd without reference number", something like this. I think it would be faster than trying to locate that copy.

          I'm assuming that will be the case because I just ordered a new one and it will take about 3-5 days for Clearinghouse to process the request, about 10 days for the mail to be delivered, then 15 days for AMCAS to process.. I really hope not tho
          Ah okay; so it's not because AMCAS will spend time locating the first copy... Damn this is nerve wrecking. Good luck to us :(

            You can't do electronic from the Clearinghouse? If I recall correctly, I submitted e-transcript through the clearinghouse and had the box to put to transcript request number. It was done in less than a week.

              A lot faster than snail mail. I think I even uploaded my transcript request form at this stage. Even though you already entered the number in the previous page so even if you don't you'll be fine.
