Hello!

I wanted to check if this has happened to anyone. I am applying to medical school to enter Fall 2021, however I just noticed that on AMCAS I selected YES to the question about retaking the MCAT when in fact I am not. I would like to know if this has happened to anyone and if this affected my chances on being reviewed earlier. Do schools put you on hold until the second score is received or do they eventually figure that you will not be retaking the exam?

I already changed the retake option to NO on AMCAS. Should I email the schools to inform them about this?

You have to put a date, what date did you put?
