You would just have to update the individual schools. And yes, I have tried eating pudding with a fork.

i had to call AMCAS about this one. You just have to have the school mail the summer transcripts. You might want to also send them a note that it's on its way, maybe? Definitely don't send the transcript yourself; they won't take it.

is it mandatory to send them updates?

#1 it's so damn expensive to print so many transcripts
#2 the course i took during summer has nothing to do with my program, it's just a history of evolution i took it out of interest
