    Check Your Verified AMCAS Application!

    In the past, AMCAS applicants received a "Transmittal Notice" in the mail which was a paper copy of what was sent to schools. It has always been important to check that document to make sure everything is correct--but this document is not longer being mailed to applicants.

    But it is still critical to check your application after the verification process has been completed! One current applicant made a change in her application and then opened it to see if the change was made, only to find that her GPA had dropped from ~3.8 to ~3.6! The reason was that two course grades weren't included (even though she had submitted them with her certified application and they appeared both in print and on the screen previously) but the units were calculated into her GPA, which was equivalent to receiving an F in two classes. She was able to make the correction but what if she hadn't checked?!!

    What should you do to make sure that errors don't creep into your application after it is submitted? When you receive the email saying that your application has been VERIFIED, be sure to go back into your application on-line to make sure everything is correct! This email will suggest that you re-check your application on line--be sure to do it!
