    As far as I know, the schools have not contacted my EC contact folks. Some schools have not even used the AMCAS information at all this year!

    The two schools were uvm and upstate...but when I went to interviews at these two school no one else knew if their's were called...one of mine was the person I did research with...who also wrote me a letter of rec...so maybe they were checking the letter of rec + papers and abstract I don't know it was really early in the year like sep before my app was verified....maybe they were trying to do this pre-verification/verify on their own?????? (I was answering the phone during lunch (only one school) at the other place and they asked if I worked there...which of course I said yes :D )

    So medical school applications require all applicants to list a contact/reference phone number for all extracurricular activities and research that is listed on the application??

    jmejia1,

    One school called one of my recommenders. Though I doubt that this is a normal practice by med schools.

    Don't worry. I interviewed at UVM in early November and was accepted and no one there called anyone who wrote a letter for me. I just thought I'd share that with you to alleviate any worries you might have that if they call your references you got a better shot/they are more interested in you, etc.....
