Couldn't find anything about this topic, so I apologize if it's been asked.

I sent in my AMCAS in mid-late June and I was verified before I received my MCAT scores (on July 19th). Now that I received my scores, I want to apply to two additional schools and withdraw my applications from two other schools (and thus, not submit my secondaries there). I see I can easily add schools on my application, but how do I withdraw my primary app from only two of my schools? (Not interested in a refund, I just don't want to submit secondaries and I don't want them to be "waiting")

In addition, now that I have added two more schools and added the LOR to be sent to these schools, AMCAS asks "You have just added or modified a designated medical school. To have your application sent to your designated medical school(s) you must first certify and re-submit your application.
Do you want to certify and submit your application now?" How long does this take? And should I "remove" the two unwanted schools before I do this?

Re-certify takes zero time at all. Don't worry about removing the schools before re-certifying.

Contact the individual schools with your AMCAS ID number and tell them you wish to withdraw your application from further consideration.

if u haven't sent a secondary there's nothing to withdraw because your app wasn't going to be considered in the first place. just dont send in the secondary...hundreds of students do this exact same thing. Send an email if you really want but definitely don't call to follow up ...that's going way overboard for something so insignificant.

If you don't finish/submit the secondary, you will never be complete or considered. Just ignore that school and you'll be fine. There's no need to send anything.

Ditto skinMD and iniquus. Just don't ever send in the secondary. You might get an email about it at the end of the season/once the school stops accepting secondaries at most.
