    Hey all, two questions I have
    1) for the "post secondary experiences" does all that info about the contact person, phone, state, description show up on the application itself? or is it just for the AMCAS people?
    2)are u all having problmes with the web application being slow and giving you a lot of **** during the course listing?
    Good luck this year to everyone... I love you all. I wish we could all go to the same med school.

    The contact info shows up for both the AMCAS staff and the admissions staff at all the med schools.

    Both sets of people will have access to that info.

    As far as the web app, they are supposed to be limiting access from the internet to help ease the load on their webservers, hence speeding up the response times. I havent logged in for a week, so I'm not sure what the status is right now.

    As June 18th approaches, I would expect their web traffic to increase substantially since people will be uploading info to their servers which in general requires more bandwidth on the channel to support compared to downloading.

    I hope they take this into account, but who knows if they will or not.

    Here's the latest email from AMCAS - Not sure if you guys saw it (be careful if you have your bulk mail filter on. they get lost...)

    Dear AMCAS Applicant,

    AMCAS looks forward to working with you during the 2002 entering class application year. In anticipation of the application season, and in response to numerous questions we've received, here are recommendations and reminders to help guide you through the process.

    AMCAS Recommendations and Reminders

    1. Verify that your application is complete and that you have read all instructions before certifying and submitting the application. Remember that only certain application items can be changed once you have submitted; medical schools prefer to receive one complete application rather than several changed versions.

    2. Print a copy of your application for your records.

    3. Keep your preferred e-mail address up-to-date at all times. E-mail is the primary mode of communication used by AMCAS, so change your e-mail address as often as necessary. To change it, simply log back into your application, enter the corrected e-mail address, and re-certify and submit your application.

    4. Confirm that you have requested all required transcripts to be sent directly to AMCAS.

    5. Some applicants have expressed concern about a June 18 AMCAS application deadline. June 18 is not a deadline; rather, it is the first day that AMCAS will accept applications. There are only two deadlines you must be concerned about: 1) the August 1 Early Decision Program (EDP) deadline for EDP applicants, and 2) the school-specific deadlines of your designated medical school(s)-the first is October 15, 2001.

    6. We anticipate that AMCAS online traffic will be exceptionally high during the last two weeks of June. Therefore, to make the process run as smoothly as possible, from June 18-22 please observe the following guidelines in submitting your application:

    *June 18: Early Decision Program (EDP) applicants only submit their applications. These applicants have the earliest deadline.
    *June 19: Non-EDP Applicants whose last names begin with A-E.
    *June 20: Non-EDP Applicants whose last names begin with F-K.
    *June 21: Non-EDP Applicants whose last names begin with L-R.
    *June 22: Non-EDP Applicants whose last names begin with S-Z.

    Thanks in advance for adhering to these recommendations, and best wishes in your application process.

    AMCAS
