    How many of you have had mistakes in your AMCAS verification? One of my grades was incorrectly turned into an F from an Incomplete. Disastrous. I called, and would absolutely not be connected with a verification specialist. I spoke to "the highest person I would speak to today."

    They told me to use the "Submit" feature. But I think we all know how long they'll take to correct it and send it out.

    At a minimum I plan on writing to all my medical schools, but it's still in no way good enough. Some may not even accept it.

    Any of you get through somehow to speak to someone who can actually changed your application while you're on the phone? Any phone numbers would help. Any one know the back door?

    Thanks.

    I had my classes rearranged, and an entire semester deleted. I didn't even bother contacting AMCAS. I'm fortunate that the classes are "A, B, C, D" and the schools should be able to figure out that I didn't taken them as "C, A, D, B". But with an F popping up, you may want to contact the schools. Did it change your GPA as well?

    Yeah, my GPA was lowered as a result. By only 0.05, but that's still a lot, since I didn't start with a 4.0!
