    They just gave generic message of "on or around june 7". # is the one on the blue letter, 319-337-1357. it's a long distance call for many of us but i have a cell phone so i don't mind calling both yesterday and today..hehe

    If they are going to postpone score release until monday, it better be free or not more than $10.

    Does anyone know if the scores are being mailed today? Or are they going to wait a week or two, so that you will pay the $15? I live close to Iowa City, so the mail should be here on Monday. I don't think that I can wait a week or two though.

Makes sense, if we're to get them around the twentieth, even though they said online reports would be posted the same day hardcopy reports were mailed. Who knows. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Yea..I would always be worried about something online b/c what if they say you did super well online like 12,14,13 but thenyou got the report and it was actually less than 10's in every section :(

    That would suck wouldn't it?

    i think the aamc is a big, bureaucratic organization that is comfortable with their own ineptitude. we will be hanging here like this for some time. aamc will consider it a flying success if they even get the scores up and accessible at all. worthless bastards

    I just called, too. The poor guy sounded exhausted...he said he had no idea, maybe the end of the day, I asked, "end of the work day, or midnight?" He said that he had no idea.

    &lt;sigh&gt; Oh well.

    I wonder, if they're bombarded with phone calls and such, whether they'll choose to *not* even bother with this service anymore, figure, screw it, let 'em wait for the mail. &lt;sigh&gt; Aye de mi.

    My obsessive compulsive friend who keeps calling them said that the scores should be up by the end of their work day, which means 4:30 Central ST. He also told her the server is strong enough to take alot of hits!

    I'm wondering why in the Hell they're answering the phone, anyway! You have to think that they were expecting a ton of applicants calling!! That's ineptitude!!

    My guess is that they'll have partial results up by 6 PM their time.

    Just a wild piece of conjecture.

    I called Iowa again! The bastard said that it is very likely that the scores will be up on Monday. I really want to bomb them, no wonder why AAMC made sure the MCAT office was in the middle of NOWHERE, AMERICA!!! God.

    :laugh: Yeah, you're right. Ok, I'll just close it instead. These guys have already graduated from med school by now. ;)

    ChymeChancellor, no more dragging out these ancient threads, ok?
