    On the letter, it says to bring your official MCAT score report and all transcripts. WTF??!?! There's no way I can get AAMC to print out an official MCAT score report for me in time for my interview in two weeks! Will that little unofficial report suffice?

    Yes. In fact, a xeroxed COPY of the little score report you got in the mail is what they want. Good luck on the interview. A word of warning: The interview day is LOOOONNNNGGG!

    as for the transcript I personally ordered an official one, but maybe unofficial copy would suffice as well, not sure.

    Just copy the MCAT score report you got in the mail and get transcripts from your registrar. While they do have to have the university seal, they do not have to be sealed in an envelope. Good luck, and enjoy Chicago. I stayed for the weekend! Great time.

    Thanks a bundle... It's not the length of the interview day that concerns me, it's the start time: 7:30?!?!?!?! And I'm from the west coast, which means it actually starts at 5:30 on my time! And I thought NYMC was bad

    When I interviewed they didn't ask for MCAT scores. They did ask for transcripts, though, and I brought unofficial ones. That was fine with them.

    Good luck!

The dean even gave me a special address so I could get them in faster. I don't know if you are planning to bring official transcripts but maybe it would be best (just to be on the safe side).

    I didn't ask anyone, I just handed them over with everyone else (although to be honest, everyone else did have official transcripts). Anyways, I've been accepted there, so I'm assuming it was fine.
