    Woohoo! I just submitted too! Is it just me or has AMCAS turned you into a paranoid freak? I proofread a bunch of times and I still feel like I must have made a mistake somewhere!
    Speaking of which, does anyone else's status page say "holding for supporting docs"? I assume it's okay since they have received both of my transcripts...
    Anyways, bed time for me!
    Bounty :)

    hi bounty,
    if by status page you mean the page when you first login, mine says that everything has been received. and yes, i, too, am a paranoid freak. i probably could have submitted a couple of days ago, but i had to quadruple check everything. i'm so sick of reading my own PS!

    and thanks to all of you other guys for your support. i hope you'll be around even after you matriculate as MS1's to support us through the entire app process. :D

    $1230 on my credit card.

    To this day, I still stop dead in my tracks saying to myself "D'oh! I should have said ___ on my application." But I guess that is the trade off between quality and when you actually submit your application.

    Princess,

    $1230, me too! =) 37 schools baby, plus Columbia and NYU. Man, California, a blessing and a curse.

    I'm too freaked out to read my application over, I don't even want to touch my print out cause I don't want my eye to accidentally fall upon any typos.

    Good luck to all of us.

    Yeah, I keep on thinking there are errors in my application! I'm so paranoid it's ridiculous. I checked it over and had two others check it, but that was a couple of weeks before I submitted it. I keep thinking I should have checked it right before I sent it (even though it shouldn't have changed from when I checked it to when I submitted it). $890 <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    princess, simple, you guys are nuts. I thought I was going overboard with 26 schools (900 bucks).

    If you know anyone who wants to buy a kidney on the blackmarket, i'm running a two for one special with one of my lungs and a femur worth of bone marrow thrown in exchange for amcas fees, secondaries, and interview travel money.

    Unless you're a californian or a resident of a state that lacks medical schools, i cant understand why you would apply to 20+ schools!

    I want to thank all of the SDNers, especially the creator of these forums (Lee, is it?). As a non-science major, I don't have many connections into the application process, but after visiting these boards I feel more comfortable with the whole process.
    Thanks you guys! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Lady in red applied to 50+ I think last year. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> She got into UCSF after being rejected by many lesser institutions!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> We had a thread going about the number of applications and how it correlated with numbers of interviews and acceptances. Too bad search is gone, or I'd bump it up for you guys. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />
