    Ok y'all I'm pretty ripped right now. I submitted a month and a half ago. However I submitted my transcripts in May. I called in July and I was told all my transcripts had been recieved. Now I get an email saying one's missing. I think the transcript could be there but that the name of the school on may be confusing them because it's an abbreviated form of what I put in my application. I called today to see what's up and the specialist was pretty rude to me. She said I couldn't speak to anyone in the transcript office and that I defintely had to resubmit the transcript and possibly change the name of the school in my application. Help!!!! Is there anyway we can actually speak to someone in transcripts or a supervisor etc? I feel like my app is really never going to be processed now. I'm not sure I should resend the transcript if they might already have it. Advice anyone?

    Sorry about your situation bro. I would definitely try to call AMCAS again and pray that you get a specialist that is a little more understanding...you really are at their mercy! If that doesn't work then I would definitely send your transcript again ASAP. Buena suerte!

    You can try talking to someone, but they pulled that crap with me and I'm EDP. They just informed me that I need Army transcripts. I called them and told them that I didn't take courses in the Army and that I didn't list the Army as school OR courses but they want the transcript anyway. My med school said that there's no bargaining with AMCAS and if they said they want it, you will be forced to get it!

    Thanks everyone (special thanx to WatchMaCallit). I called again and now magically my transcript is there. I'm going to resend it though because this is ridiculous. I've spoken to 4 people and gotten four different answers. You know, at every stage of this I think it's going to get better, but then........
