    I just got off the phone with a 'specialist.' He said that all the medical schools I applied to should have my unverified, printed AMCAS 2002 AND my MCAT scores for April 2001. Now, Northwestern is asking for an unverified, printed AMCAS 2002 to be sent to them along with their secondary application and the MCAT scores report. My concern is the MCAT scores report. I elected to not have my scores released on the test day and it shows in that bottom-right corner. It's that big "No" that I am not sure if the medical schools should see. What is the opinion on this? Do the med. schools put a value judgement on you as a candidate if you did not release your scores on test day?

    I've heard that they don't really like it much. But what can you do? I don't think you have much choice but to send it to them. I think they'd get the information anyway, even if the scores were being transmitted to them normally by AMCAS.

    I sent my mcat scores to 20 schools, and on it it says that I did not originally release my score

    it says NO...loud and clear...

    however, I have gotten 4 interviews already....so don't worry too much...go ahead and send the info
