    This is incredible. I emailed AMCAS to check if they had my transcript earlier today...around 3:30 to be exact. Then, in less than one and a half hours, I received a response!! Whou'da thunk it. Equally amazing was the response--they have my transcript on file. Woo-hoo!
    Something is finally going right here! :cool:

    They've doubled their e-mail response staff, thank God. Go to the "Good website for AMCAS info" that someone else posted for more on what they're doing to fix the mess. http://www.elon.edu/househ/amcas01k.htm
    I was equally amazed when I called them this afternoon to only have to wait on hold for 10 minutes!

    I wrote them yesterday morning asking about status of my application. No reponse yet. I think they're selective in their responses.

    I called them this morning at 11:30 EST and was floored when I waited 0 minutes. That's right - as soon as the automated message at the beginning was over, a specialist came right on. At least my phone bill will be lower...

    I have to agree with RXFUDD on this one - I called this morning at about 11:00 am and at the end of the standard recording about unusual high call volume, a live person answered immediately! Absolutely no wait to talk with them. Now, let's just hope they starting processing the applications.

    allengal & sz, make sure when you e-mail them to use the subect lines that they recommend. If you don't know them, the automated phone message gives them all.

    wow! I spent around half an hour on hold each of the two times I called today...but at least it is a local call, so I can't complain too much.

    and I got to listen to that lovely (yeah right) background music while I ate lunch. :)

    Even if you use the subject lines, they don't always respond. I used the exact headline "transcript status" as they requested, and got back the exact same generic email about using the right headlines and blah, blah, blah. I don't know what they're doing over there, but it sure isn't efficient.

    I too was one of the lucky ones....3 minutes flat!

    But I think they got rid of that awesome Mariah Carey Adult-Contemp remix CD.....I was actually starting to grow fond of it ;)
