If I enter a wrong grade on my AMCAS, can I just call them and have them change it? Is this an easy process?
They will change it during verification.
How much will a grade change affect your GPAs?
Same thing happened to me, needed to wait for a grade to be posted in order to send that transcript and get in line to verify. If whatever you estimated your grade to be on AMCAS is wrong, they will just fix it during verification.
Try and focus on other things, the anxiety will give you indigestion!
The wait time right now for verification is about 20 days. If you submit a transcript now (with the old grade), but enter the anticipated grade before submitting, you'd theoretically have twenty days to send in a second updated transcript with the higher grade (and an email to AMCAS to expect it), before verification would begin. If the grade you entered is wrong, they would correct it. Is this what you propose doing?
The downside to this great plan is that when you certify the application upon submitting, you attest that it's true and complete to the best of your knowledge. I think it would be more honest to leave the grade blank or marked Incomplete.
You don't enter the verification queue until transcript and application +fees are received.
