Hey guys,

I was just wondering I know that if you withdraw your app, you can't apply again this cycle. But if i don't have an MCAT score on my account yet then can I create a new AAMC account and resubmit a brand new primary AMCAS for verification? I know I would have to order transcripts again and basically pay the MCAT fee from the new account and register for a date...

Would this work? Is this allowed?

My app is in this stage : Submitted to AMCAS - Ready for Review

Why do you need to resubmit your app?

I noticed that for one of my activities I put the start date as 2016 instead of 2017 :( It's an activity that I am continuing right now and will continue until next year.
*Typo; should I mention this in my secondary or just leave it.... and address it at an interview if asked?

You’re fine. Relax. Take a breath. There are much better options for everyone involved than what you’re suggesting.

If I remember correctly, you manually put in your hours. Are your hours you listed for said activity correct? If they are, I probably wouldn’t worry about it much. Worst case scenario: if asked about the activity, just state you made a typo about the year.

If you miscalculated your hours and they’re higher than what you actually did, I would probably state that on your secondaries and email the AdComs for apps without a place to state this on their secondaries.

Oh, fer crying out loud! This won't sink your application, but being so bloody neurotic will!

I wouldn't even give a half a **** about this mistake if I read your application. Just don't lie about your hours. I think it would be a tragedy if you went to all that trouble and paid all that extra money for this workaround. Plus I think it's way more dishonest than the original mistake itself.

Should I leave this be until someone asks me about the activity in an interview or if I am questioned about this activity in the future by verification?
- I don't think its particularly a big deal so I am not sure if I want to draw attention to it via a secondary or a note.

My hours are accurate, so no problem there. This was for a educational wilderness science camp that i take part in multiple times a year.

Thanks Goro! I've been trying to take these since 2015 when you first helped me out over a "Is it the end of the world that i got a B in gen chem 1 post "

Would you recommend I list this on my secondaries for schools wherever possible? or maybe send an email out to every school I will apply to? or should I just leave it alone until someone asks me about it and I can tell them that this was an oversight....


Like I said the activity is a educational wellness camp that I take part in 2 or 3 times a year annually and have been been doing since 2017. My hours are accurate and the only misstep is that I put the starting date as Jan '16 rather than Jan '17. I will be continuing this until matriculation next year.

No. Move on. No one will be concerned with this.

For the sake of future readers who wonder about this question:

From p9 of the AMCAS Applicant Guide: Do not create several AAMC ID numbers by registering a second time because this action may be flagged as fraudulent and could result in an investigation.

From p61: Withdrawing your application is final. Once you do so, you may no longer apply for the current application year.

do I have to reach through the electrons and smack you upside the head?
Never bring attention to a negative.

Please do NOT do this!! One minor mistake is not worth the risk of committing an EVEN BIGGER mistake (or attempt a mistake). This reminds me of a quote from Suits. Don't cover up a mistake with an even bigger one!
