Is it just me or are AMCAS people getting more competent?

    ok I phoned today and I only waited 15 minutes. This guy answered the call and I asked him about my transcripts. Well, after entering my info into the computer, he said the transcripts weren't entered into the computer yet, but he actually went and searched the pile of transcripts for me! He took down my number and actually CALLED ME BACK! Unbelievable! BTW, they've got one of my transcripts only and the other one probably hasn't arrived, since the other school only sent it early July (from Canada to boot). But in any case, these guys seem to be getting better and they at least understand our plight.

    Yeah i think so too. I called yesterday to see if my transcripts had arrived yet (after sending them 3 times!) and the dude on the phone was super nice and efficient and my transcripts were there! What a nice change!

    Maybe they hear the cries of the people ;)

    I just hope it continues....
     
  5. well, I am encouraged by your posts, since I have sent my transcripts three times also... and I have no idea if the last one will actually end up in the "competent hands of the AMCAS transcript officer".

    is calling AMCAS the only way to confirm that they have received your trancript?

    They gave me the info thru email, but I had to try multiple times. If you do this, make sure you put the correct subject line in the email header (transcript status)

    Their phones are working much better. I got to talk to a rep in 6 minutes today .. it's pretty funny how excited and surprised i sound when the actual AMCAS person says "how can i help you?"

    I'm not sure how accurate she was, but the lady told me they are starting to transmit to medical schools TODAY. we'll see. :)

    Hey, I also got through with amcas today in about 10 minutes. It is funny how she picked up, and I couldve sworn it was going to be another lady saying "our specialists blah blah" but the lady says "hello amcas" and Im like woah wait wait. anyways, they had my one transcript which is great. I had emailed them twice about them with no word, so I decided to go ahead and call. If anyone is waiting for emails, or just has a question about their app, id suggest to go ahead and call while they're answering relatively quickly.
