"Once you submit your application to AMCAS, you will receive an acknowledgment of its receipt via email (provided you have included a valid email address). Such acknowledgment does not indicate that your materials (i.e., official transcripts) are complete or that deadline requirements have been satisfied.
The AMCAS Verification process starts when your application has been submitted and your official transcripts have arrived at AMCAS. Once all your materials have been received, your application joins the verification queue. Processing can take up to 6 weeks from the time that your application and all required official transcripts are received.
During the Verification process, AMCAS verifies your coursework against your official transcripts, ensuring that the course information entered in your application matches that on your official transcripts.
AMCAS may return your application to you—which could result in missed deadlines—if major errors or omissions in course listings are found during verification. AMCAS will stop verifying your materials and send an email notification if any missing or incomplete transcripts are discovered during verification."
