I'm an early decision applicant, and I knew that my committee letter had been sent to the admissions office, AMCAS transmitted, and I sent in my secondary about two weeks ago. I haven't heard anything, so I called today and asked if my application was complete. I was told that they were waiting for the committee letter! I told them that it had been hand-delivered [by the health professions office], and after being on hold for a while, I was told that there was a separate folder for letters that arrived before the applications did, and they found my letter. I guess you can't assume anything! AM I EVER GLAD I CALLED!
