So my application just got verified and my IN grade appeared to be an F. Is that right? What should I do? I've heard that it should not be counted toward the final GPA...
In my transcript, IN grade means 0.00 gpa, but i will get the A- grade when the school starts

Any help? Please?
see page 42 of link below. it is my understanding if your notes this only as an incomplete on an official transcript, which may be different than what you see as student, AMCAS should not assign a grade. However may assign an IF temporary grade until course is completed. contact AMCAS to address

It's not IF yet. In my school, we have 1 complete semester to resolve that IN grade. And my professor said he'll assign a grade once the school starts. So should I submit the academic change request? Do I need to provide them those information?
And how long will that request be processed?

Call them and depending on what they say, reevaluate your approach. This is like communication 101.
Sorry but i don't understand...what is communication 101?
If that's an error on their part, will they change it right away? Cuz if so, it would be faster than submitting the academic change request...

It is a short hand for saying basic communications or any by saying ANYTHING 101 such as Deli 101 : sandwich means 2 slices bread and stuff in between

If that's an error on their part, will they change it right away? Cuz if so, it would be faster than submitting the academic change request...
We dont know which is why you need to call them and ask

They are not changing **** right away, they have thousands of applications to process.

This is communication 101:

1) I have a problem

2) I identify who can solve this problem

3) I contact that person ASAP (in person>call>email>letter/paper request)

4) I explain my problem to that person. They either a) solve it b) explain me more detail c) identify someone else I need to contact/ something else I need to do

5) Problem is either solved or repeat steps 2-4

You will notice that SDN is not solving your problem for you. We are not the right people to contact.
