yes, call them. They were pretty friendly when i called about something else. Just as a heads up: They were having some problems with the Post-secondary experiences part of the on-line supplemental. AMCAS pre-fills it with what we already entered in AMCAS, but for some reason, the description part of it gets cut off on the MN application. Be sure to check it when you fill out your on-line. If there are problems, they told me to mail in a hard copy. Good luck!
They're supposed to, but the woman in admissions that I spoke with suggested that it would be a good idea for me to mail in a hard copy. She even said that a hard copy of that section on the AMCAS would be fine. I sent in a modified word document that I had already with a cover letter explaining that their staff asked me to send it in because there was a problem with the on-line application.
Call them just to make sure. I felt that it was kind of odd that she told me to send it in. The office seems pretty strict about getting permission before turing anything in.
