Getting 'webpage is not available' on chrome and 'page cannot be displayed' on IE.

Anyone else?

Yes, I just posted about this in the Jan 23rd thread. They had a note at the top when you log in saying how they were switching something about the website at 7pm today (totally not a computer person so I tuned the technical part out) and we were to go to a different site if we had trouble logging in today after 7pm. They gave a website (something like emcat.practicetest.com) and said to write it down so we would have it when the e-mcat site went down. I wrote it down...on scrap paper that I then threw away.

So, that's why it's down, and there *is* a way to access it and we were given the website, but I don't know the url. I've been looking through the aamc site to no avail. If anyone finds it, can you post it on here? I'll keep working on it and if I figure it out I'll certainly let everyone know!

The AAMC website said it would be down starting from around 7 PM EST. You can use emcat.practicetesting.com if you need to access practice tests.

Thanks for the url! I knew it was something like that!

But...that site isn't working for me either. Is it working for anyone else?

that url doesnt work for me either, just re-routes me back to emcat.com and fails to load.

Thanks for the response. The website isn't working for me either. Would you happen to know how long the shutdown is supposed to last?

I feel like this is the AAMCs way of saying 'go party kids, it's NYE'

I remember the blurb saying something about how the alternative url was some sort of back door to the actual website (again, don't know the technical details so forgive me on that). Seems like the whole thing isn't working?

Too bad. I really wanted to finish the last few physics SA problems!

In their blurb they kept referring to "some users may experience..." which suggests that the experience isn't universal. I'm glad it's working for you! It's a good sign, and maybe the rest of us will be able to access it soon!

My router's been acting up the past two days, providing me with Internet for one hour and no internet the next hour. Wasted so much time the past two days trying to fix the thing and finally got it working. Now this e-mcat site is down? The Internet doesn't want me to study for the MCAT...

To all those who are able to login:

Which site are you using? I tried e-mcat.com on chrome, safari, and firefox and still cannot load the page. I tried the other site as well...however, still no luck.

Still not working for me even after trying chrome, safari, and firefox, and deleting my history. Maybe it is a Colorado thing.

I'm still having problems with both websites. I've tried IE and Chrome. This was my last day for a full study session before my exam on the 10th. :nailbiting: I'm in Alberta, Canada.

I got it to work by using my Personal Hotspot off my iPhone rather than normal WiFi, and using Firefox. Gonna get murdered by my parents for this phone bill but hey, I really need to do a practice test today...
