Dear Applicants: Greetings from San Francisco. I just wanted to drop a line to share my recent conversations with one of the most prestigious class action law firms, Leiff Cabraser, regarding the AMCAS debacle. I contacted with the basic premise that if AMCAS is a true service (and not a monopoly), then AMCAS' service has been less than stellar (to put it kindly). To make up for all the hassles that it caused the applicants, AMCAS should at least refund each applicant his or her processing fee. In addition, I have colleagues for whom AMCAS has lost transcript or screwed up GPA calculation. Although measurable damage is hard to prove, I believe it is still the right of all applicant (as customers of a service) to have their voices heard. If anyone here is interested in sharing their negative experiences with AMCAS, please go ahead and drop Leiff Cabraser a line at <a href="http://www.lieffcabraser.com/contact.htm" target="_blank">http://www.lieffcabraser.com/contact.htm</a> Fill out the brief form and in the comments section, put "ATTN: San Francisco Office." This is a totally legit law firm who have historically represented consumers and inviduals against larger corporations (eg. bad hip replacements, drug side effects etc.). LC is familiar with the AMCAS issue and is reviewing the case. Once again, I am not out here to make big bucks by hitting up AMCAS. But as a customer, I feel that AMCAS did not provide us with the service that we paid for. So, let your voices be heard and who knows....you may get your $500 to $1000 fees back. peace out.
