Like my own social security number....sigh thats just sad.
Of course, its 121*****.....well, you get the point
whoever voted for me to home
I am home suckah!
I can type it out faster than any other number...
nope, mine is always on my clipboard. Ctrl+V baby
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..
My number is the ages of three other people when I am 100.
i know it better than my SS#
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!
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 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.
good luck fellow three timer
I tatooed mine on my ass.
i tattoed mine IN my ass. beat that
The "Go Home Braluk" votes are mounting!
I abso friggin lutely memorized mine - but that would have been a boring vote!
i memorized my amcas id back when i was applying. but then again, i also memorize my credit card numbers, pi to 100 digits at one point (down to 40something in my laziness), etc.
You'd better memorize 'cause they make you say it backwords really fast at interviews.
Sorry Braluck, I had to vote go home, it was to funny. But yes I did memorize it
doesn't that make you feel like a pathetic number in this already apathetic world?
this is my home, im not going anywhere to the seven
wouldnt it be funny if u had to recite ur amcas backwards as a sobriety test
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?
I still know it from last year!!! 122***41
i'm such a bum...i have my number saved on a post-it on my desktop wall paper cause i'm too lazy to memorize it. so i have to minimize all my browser windows to copy/paste it into all my forms...ironically i'm making more work for myself this way
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.
i have 2 of mine memorized from online ordering (mostly delivery food).
people are impressed when i am ordering by phone and just spit out the number and ex date with no card in hand
mines so easy u cant not memorize it...it only has 3 different numbers and they are all connected
