I was complete since 6/13 and Transcripts in 6/05. I called them up today about my application status and 1 hour later my GPA was verified...Call in and ask about your status. It doesn't hurt to try... :luck:

If we submit but update later on (add schools, activity.. etc).. will that throw your application back to the beginning or does it keep its spot? Thanks

where do you see verification?

Might be good news for me if I can get my app in the second batch! What do you think are the chances for a file complete on 6-27 to be ready to be shipped next thursday?

Under School Designations is says that they were Designated on 6/13 and Mailed on 7/7. It doesn't say the word Verification explicitly. But I guess it means that it was verified and mailed out to schools on 7/7.

I called AACOM today and the guy told me he'd hold onto my application and try to get them to process it tonight or this weekend. Sure enough when I got home, my GPA was calculated. I'm hoping the rest comes through. I submitted on 6/20/06 by the way.

Thank you for your email. Please note that your application is complete
and is currently in process. Once verification of your application
materials is complete it will be sent to your programs.


Note: Time Frame
Although the time frame varies, AACOMAS normally processes applications
in four to six weeks. Applications submitted via AACOMAS On-Line may be
processed slightly faster than paper applications. Missing transcripts
and/or receipt of large volumes of materials in the AACOMAS Office can
affect this time frame. If you cannot view your Applicant Profile,
contact AACOMAS to make sure that your materials have been received. You
should allow four weeks after submitting your application for processing
before contacting AACOMAS regarding the status of your application.


Please let us know if you have other questions.

Looks like they extended the wait period from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 weeks.
Do you guys think it is bad that my committee letter will get to the schools before my app is verified?

I received that exact email today too....

No, in general I don't think it's a problem for the school to receive your letter before your app. They should just put it aside until they are able to start a real file on you with your verified app. That happened to me last year and I don't think it was a problem. But, some schools specifically state in their instructions that they do not want your letters of rec/committee letter until they request it (i.e. if they send you a secondary)...
