During a Lexus-Nexus search of articles relating to our AMCAS nightmares, I found this in an article from the Columbus Dispatch: "Mark Notestine, assistant dean for admissions and records at Ohio State University's medical school, said he and others cautioned against speedy implementation of the new system. "The problem was . . . AMCAS literally refused to develop a contingency plan and really took sort of an arrogant attitude," said Notestine, who also sits on the American Association of Medical Colleges' committee on admission. [end of story] Can you believe this?? The only thing that was mitigating my disdain for AMCAS was that I thought this was something that they were forced into, as far as their previous computer system having failed. But to know this is perhaps entirely due to their arrogance...that is really upsetting.
