    eventhough their specialist begs to differ on the phone? I called and the person said that my MCAT scores have been released, but none of my schools has them! You guys...advice me what to do! :confused:

    Apparently there's a glitch (yes, another one, anyone surprised?) that's keeping April scores that were withheld and then released from being transmitted. You have to call AMCAS and ask (probably had better demand, and speak to a supervisor, not a "specialist") for them to send a letter to your schools with the AMCAS scores. Apparently they know it's happening, but aren't doing anything about it unless someone calls and complains. I would also send a copy of the score report you got to all the schools with a cover letter explaining the situation.

    See the thread entitled "You are Not Going to Believe This" for more details and suggestions.

    Hey Drako, are you still keeping the list of schools accepting paper copies of AMCAS and those with on-line secondaries updated? Hope so, 'cause I keep pointing the newcomers to it. Don't know what I would have done without it!! You should list it as an example of leadership on your secondaries!!! :D

    Also, another idea on what to do about your scores. You could pay to have AAMC send them to the schools, as if they were all non-AMCAS schools. A bit expensive, perhaps, but probably worth the peace of mind. I can't take credit for this idea. Someone on that other thread had done it.

    SMW,
    I still keep the list of medical schools taking paper AMCAS updated. I am also maintain the ones with online status check. The link could be found at the bottom of the paper AMCAS schools page.

    Yeah, I should list this as a leadership experience on my AMCAS. But knowing AMCAS, I don't want to risk a resubmission!!! LOL I can't believe that after five months, my scores are still no where to be found by them schools I applied to. This is sickening!

    I am going to call them at 8am their time tomorrow and scream! Thanks for your help! :)

    I wonder what each of us looks like. Do you?
