    If you don't have it memorized, it's not a bad idea to bring it to your interviews. I needed it a few times. Not that they wouldn't have been able to look it up, but at least I didn't have to ask.

    Mine is very symmetrical, so it didn't take much effort.

    i am surprised if anyone who has started filling out secondaries has not memorized it yet.

    those who have yet to submit amcas n stuff that's a different story..

    I'd be worried about your memory if you don't have it memorized by the time you finish applying.

    yeah, it's pretty hard to not memorize it. secondaries even forced me to memorize my credit card number...which has made ordering takeout much easier ;)

    I applied for the first time for 2004/2005, and then last year when I reapplied I had the same number. This year is number three and I still have the same ID. If I don't know it by now then I'm in trouble! :p

    The same thing happened to me . . . so many flights for interviews, hotel rooms, heck even the odd secondary I could pay online . . .

    Memorizing your AAMC ID is just the first step in a long semi-toturous process. But I did have a lot of fun skipping out on whole weeks of class to fly around the country, made me feel special (and also somewhat unimportant because life at school went on whether I was there or not). Ah, memories . . .

    it took me a while but I've got it down :thumbup: I also remember my Blockbuster employee number from five years ago and rattle it off instead of using a card. they look at me like I'm a freak "why does this woman have her blockbuster account number memorized?" I don't bother to explain it to them.

    Not any worse than being at airborne school for 3 weeks known only as C477 (pronounced Charlie-four-seven-seven). By the end I didn't even remember that I had an actual name . . .

    Wouldn't that be crazy at interviews to have people referred to only by AMCAS ID number? I'd laugh. Too bad they're so long . . . maybe on individual interview days just use last 4 digits?

    It's not a bad idea to memorize it. With luck it will be your physician ID# someday. If you think you're sick of writing it now, just wait...

    Thats nothing. THe other day I went to enter my Credit Card # for a secondary and I found myself instinctually typing it out without a glance to my card. Now THAT is scary.
