Viewing Applicant Information

1. From any applicant record, click the applicant’s name to view the Applicant Details page.

2. Information appears in categorized, collapsible panels. To expand and collapse panels, click the widget.

Applicant Details Panels

The panels that display are determined by users’ Work Groups; only applicant header information will display if panels are not permissioned to a Work Group.

Applicant Header

The Applicant Header displays key demographic information, including:

  • Applicant Name
  • Applicant Photo
  • AAMC ID
  • Application Status, which appears as a flag. Many applicants will appear in the Verified status, but schools have the option to receive a small subset of application data for applicants who have submitted to AMCAS but are not yet verified. These applicants will appear in the Received application status.
  • An All Evaluations Received flag (highlighted in lilac) appears if all letters of evaluation have been received.   
  • The most recent date and time that information was transmitted from AMCAS to WebAdMIT for AMCAS (i.e. Last AAMC Update)

Additionally, the top right corner of the Applicant Header provides navigation options to move between applicants.

Uploading an Applicant Photo

From the Applicant Details page, you can upload a photo in .jpg, .gif, .bmp, and .png formats. We recommend a size of 640x480. Note that photos are optional and are not provided by AMCAS.

  1. Click Upload in the Applicant Header section.
  2. Click Browse to find and select the photo on your computer. Note that a list of programs appears in the Applicant Photo dialog box. WebAdMIT for AMCAS automatically selects the programs that the applicant applied to. If necessary, uncheck any programs, then click Upload.
