    Hi,

    Does anyone know how these are paid off? Do you pay the fees when you fill out the AMCAS forms? I know this is a stupid question, but this is the first time for me...

    thx!

    You pay AMCAS $150 for the first school and $30 (I think?) for each additional school. You can pay this by credit card when you submit. I think they are doing electronic bank transfers this year too.

    When the schools get your app, they will send you a secondary (if they have one) and you send in a check with the secondary. Fees vary depending on the school. They range from about $100 to free.

    Hope this helps!

    If you are very nice to the AMCAS officials, they might let you "work it off" [wink wink] <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    Femtochemistry,

    the above posters are correct. You seem to be asking many elementary questions regarding the AMCAS application. And certainly there is nothing wrong with asking the questions here, however I think you will find that most of the questions can be answered by reading the AMCAS Instruction Booklet available on-line at <a href="http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas/2003.htm" target="_blank">http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas/2003.htm</a> .

    Best wishes to you for this upcoming application cycle...
