    Also just received this from AMCAS.....
    those geniuses.............


    Dear AMCAS applicant,

    AMCAS has started to receive numerous questions regarding
    post-submission changes to an application. Below you will find all the
    information you will need to successfully make any desired changes. We
    hope you find this information helpful.

    Best wishes during you medical school admissions process.

    AMCAS

    Requesting a Post-Submission Change:
    Certain items in the AMCAS application allow for change after you have
    submitted your application to AMCAS; others do not. To determine
    whether a particular change can be made, view the AMCAS Application
    outline at http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas/application.htm

    IMPORTANT NOTE: YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE UPDATED UNLESS YOU
    RE-CERTIFY AND RE-SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY APPEAR ON
    YOUR PRINTED APPLICATION AS THOUGH YOUR CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE.

    Biographic Changes:
    Allowed biographic data changes (see above link to the AMCAS
    Application Outline) can be made in the application itself by the
    applicant, and do not require that the applicant submit a change request
    to AMCAS. For example, if you wish to update you preferred email
    address, simply enter your new address on the application page,
    re-certify and re-submit your application.

    Academic Changes:
    If after reviewing by using your application's print option any
    corrections AMCAS has made to your application you wish to make a
    change, use the Change Notification Option on the vertical menu located
    on the left side of your application screen. This option allows you to
    send to AMCAS a request providing a thorough explanation of the change
    you wish to make. Allow at lease fifteen working days for AMCAS to
    review and/or process any change request. If necessary, AMCAS will:
    * Recalculate GPAs
    * Make corrections to the following course items if appropriate:
    Academic Status
    Course Type
    Transcript Grade
    Credit Hours Attempted
    AMCAS Grade

    AMCAS will not change or correct:
    * Course titles or numbers
    * Academic Year or Term
    * Corrections based on information that becomes available after you
    submit your application. This includes final grades for current/future
    courses, and grade changes submitted to your registrar.


    IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER, YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE UPDATED
    UNLESS YOU RE-CERTIFY AND RE-SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY
    APPEAR ON YOUR PRINTER APPLICATION AS THOUGH THIS CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE.


    My question is, what if you don't have the "Change Notification" button yet??

    Hello??

    OK this doesnt make any sense to me:

    "Biographic Changes:
    Allowed biographic data changes (see above link to the AMCAS
    Application Outline) can be made in the application itself by the
    applicant, and do not require that the applicant submit a change request
    to AMCAS. For example, if you wish to update you preferred email
    address, simply enter your new address on the application page,
    re-certify and re-submit your application."


    First off, the only way to recertify and resubmit is to issue a change request because the old button is gone. So somehow they are confused about their own system.

    Change request = only way to recertify and resubmit once you get the new button.

    Read my post about "Anyone clicked the changed notification button?"...my problem exactly. It doesn't even let you submit...let alone re-certify. There is a "submit" button on the screen, but after clicking it comes up with an error that I have to complete the rest of the application before submitting. My apps already completed for crying out loud! It's already been verified!!! What a crock.
