    How come when I go to select the application I want to complete the only option to chose from is Rural Medicine Supplemental? Anyone else with this problem?

    Yes. I await the gunners who will call the office to tell them to fix it.

    Oh okay, if it's a glitch then the office is probably aware of the situation.

    I went to their open house and I got to admit, the staff, students, and general atmosphere was great, really laid back. :)

    It's working now.

    Question: For Course Requirements, should we enter ALL courses taken under that subject? Or only fill enough to fulfill the requirements?

    Note for those applying to the rural medicine program:

    The application contains two sections ("Additional Information" and "Rural Medicine Scholars") that basically ask the same questions (with some small differences). I called the admissions office today and we only have to fill out one of those sections.

    I just called them...They said they want you to print out the signature page as well as the AAMC Fee Waiver email and mail it to their office.

    Is the fee $100 or $110? My email says $110 and the page after I hit submit says $100-- I want to hold off on submitting for a little while otherwise I would just try it myself :)

    I emailed Upstate about if I should resubmit since I only paid the $100. They said it was a glitch but that I am fine just paying the $100.

    Ok I knew Upstate was a very laid back school (too much so, according to some), but this secondary was amazing. It took me under 10 minutes to complete it, after I spent a couple days each on Miami and NYU. Thank you Upstate.

    Also I paid $100 too :confused:

    I am divided as to whether I even want to submit my secondary here given the high secondary fee and that the school is allegedly on probation. Thoughts?

    I don't think the probation is a huge issue, only because I can't imagine this school losing accreditation. It's an established program, and a lot of students from my school go there. Not to say the probation doesn't matter. It'll definitely be a notch against Upstate, if I end up deciding between schools. But, it's not enough to keep me form attending if everything else is good.

    I have a fee waiver as well, and on the "Pay Now" page it says "If you answered "Yes" to the question, "Did you receive a fee waiver from AMCAS?", click on the Submit link on the bottom of the page instead of the "Pay Now" button."

    I do not see a Submit link... I assume my application is not complete until I submit, can any one help if there is actual link to click, and if so can you provide it? Thanks.
