I'm just wondering, can you order tour transcripts and send to AMCAS yourself, or do you have to request your school to send it directly to AMCAS?

Also, if you're sending it, would it have to be in a sealed envelope or anything like that?


Thanks a lot folks :)

They must be sent from your school; they cannot have ever been in your possession.

From this website:

excerpt: #4
Can I send an official sealed copy of my transcripts?

AMCAS will not accept transcripts from applicants under any circumstances. Transcripts must arrive directly from the Registrar's office. Registrars should forward transcripts to: AMCAS, Attn: Transcripts AAMC Medical School Application Services, P.O. Box 57326, Washington, DC, 20037.
