I was wondering if any of you contacted GW about submitting the secondary application without having the primary application verified. Under helpful hints for GW application, it says, "Please ensure that your AMCAS application is complete and verified". When I contacted AMCAS about it, they said to send the secondary if the school sends you one regardless of the verification status.

Why would you send before you are verified. Something could be messed up on it and you would have to change it.

Not to mention GW asks for your courses and the grades. You have to match what is on your AMCAS.

i sent my GW secondary in the day after i got it, and im not verified. i dont see the harm in them thinking you are excited about their school and on top of your stuff. they will hold everything on file until you are verified, and then you will be immediately put in line for review, instead of waiting 3-5 days for them to get your mailed secondary after you are verified.

Good point. Glad I waited. Another week won't hurt.

did you contact the GW admission office about it? is there any way they might lose the secondary since the primary isn't verified yet?

I spoke with GW the other day, and the told me to go ahead and submit. They also told me to get the letters in too. The sooner they get that stuff in, the sooner they can get it in the computer and that way when you are finally processed you will be ready to go. I hate waiting for dang AMCAS, WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG!!!!!! :mad:
