    What is AMCAS sending to medical schools?

    In most cases, nothing.
    For a few fortunate applicants, lots of unknown, supersecret, double encoded, incomprehensible jibbirish.

    **How are medical schools using AMCAS provided materials?

    They get little cardbord tubes.
    They then wind the secret coded documents around until they have a roll suitable for hanging in their bathroom stalls.

    **How do I release my MCAT scores to AMCAS?

    This is easy...make your own photocopies of your scores (and everything else) and send to the school of your choice.

    **I released my MCAT scores to AMCAS. Why can't my medical schools see
    them?

    Because...you silly...you don't look *before* you wipe. Jeesh....

    **Is AMCAS sending paper applications to medical schools?

    Everybody's but yours you dolt!

    **How do I make changes to my AMCAS application?

    Ask your maker to intervene on your behalf, or make a pact with Satan...See you do have options. :D

    Well, I read through all their FAQ's, and I'm certainly glad to hear that everything is hunky-dory! ;)

    So I guess for those of us lucky enough to be verified, most schools have 4 different versions of our apps?

    Not that the apps are really different, but it seems this setup would make it somewhat likely for the med schools to misplace documents.
