Do we send updated transcripts to medical schools with our completed summer course grades along with our secondaries? Or do we send an updated transcript to AMCAS? It wouldn't make sense to send it to AMCAS after verification so I was wondering if each school was different before calling all 25 schools. Thanks any info would be greatly appreciated.

You do not have to send a transcript for any courses you complete after submitting AMCAS, unless explicitly instructed by a school (e.g., Baylor will ask for your transcript if they invite you to interview). For those courses, you can submit a transcript to any school you applied to, at your discretion, as part of an update letter. Applicants commonly send update letters to schools they are interested in, and these letters usually explain any significant events that have passed since submitting AMCAS, which can include new grades. Also, if you are accepted, some schools will ask for your final transcript, so you can send it then.
