AMCAS Application

A couple days ago I just started putting filling out the online application. This application is used by most medical schools. One of the most annoying things about the process if that you have to enter the grade of every course you have taken in your college career. We already pay for the service. They could at least enter the data themsevles since they require an official transcript.

And to submit the application to a medical school isn’t cheap. I’ve been reading the book Ultimate Guide to Medical Schools by U.S. News and World Report. The suggest that each applicant apply to around 10-15 schools. The AMCAS fee for one medical school is $160 and then $30 for each additional school.

So, for someone sending the application to 15 schools, that would be $580. I’m not sure if there are additional costs yet or not… Oh well, let the fun times roll…
