The 2014 AMCAS Application has opened for applicants to begin working on their AMCAS application. Applicants will not be able to submit their applications until June 4th and medical schools will not begin to receive applicant data until June 28th. You can take a test drive of the application by registering and logging in to the 2014 AMCAS Application by using fake credentials of your choice and, if you did this last year you can use those same credentials. As a reminder, AMCAS stopped providing a single guest account early last year.
The 2014 AMCAS Application fee is $160 (includes one medical school designation) and $35 for each additional fee. Additionally, applicants can apply for the Fee Assistance Program and once all supporting documentation are received it only takes around 15 days for the AAMC to grant an eligibility decision.
Applicants can begin to submit transcripts but they will need to be sure that if they’d like their latest spring or summer grades to be included in their application that they wait unitl the grades are reflected on the official transcript before submitting those transcripts.
Letters of Evaluation
Letter writers can begin to submit letters to AMCAS via the AMCAS Letter Writer Application, Interfolio, VirtualEvals or paper. Be sure the applicant has provided you with the letter request for so you have access to their AAMC ID and AMCAS Letter ID when submitting the letters. Letters DO NOT have to be submitted prior to the application being submitted, verified or processed but must comply with the individual deadlines set by medical schools for letters. You can share the Letters of Evaluation Guidelines with your students and faculty as well.
