Yep, having the same problem! Also getting "Invalid file type" followed by a 1. Any solutions?
I emailed the residency director at Mercy and she responded:
"I've gotten many emails from students who are experiencing problems. Just upload when possible. It does not reflect poorly on your application."

What I'm not clear on is are we now allowed to submit after the deadline? And we cannot submit the application until all the materials are uploaded, correct?

Drex -- Did you ever get through and were able to submit on PhORCAS?

Didn't work on my end!
