Thank you, Tweety! I love your gremlins. :love:

I think I may have started you down the gremlin road once upon a time? I never got past bookmarking the site. I guess that's why A. Caveman described me once as being like a '40's black and white movie. He said my posts needed more flava! Another sign of serious addiction -- remembering random comments like that!!

I'd be careful before I go posting my social security number and birthdate online on a page that has no digital certificates.


Have any of these schools addressed this concern?

Just my $ .02

Well, we all used them last year, without any adverse results that I know of. Not all of them require SSN's and birthdates.

I've been a victim of credit card fraud and I imagine identity fraud is no better. I'm amazed med schools don't take this into consideration. There are full time professional losers out there intercrepting that type of data....

I know I'm an internet support person for a large HMO (ouch!)....but give me a break I want to be a doctor.

It's a good heads up. Maybe you should contact the webmasters for the schools that aren't set up right (as if you need another project in the midst of applying to med school! :D ). After what happened with Princeton and Yale recently, you'd think all schools would be upgrading their security! :rolleyes:

The webmaster would probably forward my name to adcom and they'd scratch me off the potential Entering Class of 200X. Comment next to name, 'whistle blower - too controversial - can't leave well enough alone'.

OK...I'm being paranoid.:rolleyes:

Doubt that the webmaster would have any contact with the adcom, but really, I think it's more likely that you'd be given credit for initiative rather than having it held against you.

i think some of the list isn't up-to-date. the stanford link on that site is wrong. should be http://sms.stanford.edu/sms .

i haven't checked all of the other ones out, but some schools may have changed their sites. just a lil' heads up. :)

Drako has his email address at the bottom of the site to notify him of any errors, additions, etc. I don't know if he's still maintaining it, but it's worth a try. He was great about it last year.

I told Harvard how to fix a bug in their secondary and they never wrote me back after that. We'll see what happens...

Speaking of which, it's amazing how badly designed some of these apps are. I write web applications as a non-professional, and anything I've written is much better designed than some of these med school apps (Harvard included). It's not like programming is something difficult like playing an instrument. And you'd think with all the dot-com layoffs, they'd be able to find competent programmers...

wash u, upenn, and stanford only tell you if your application is complete, as far as i can tell. no info about whether you got an interview.

i got invited for an interview at wash u several weeks ago, and nothing has changed on the site.

northwestern is a different story, though, so of course i check that site ridiculously often...
