From AMCAS in response to an application status inquiry: Andrew, your application is presently active, it takes approximately 6-8 weeks to be processed. Please let us know if you have any additional concerns Thank you for contacting us. AMCAS (Submitted 7/30) What exactly does "presently active" mean I wonder. And crikey, they had better not mean 6-8 weeks from now. Will the fun never stop?
