    While I feel extremely sorry for everyone who has been having troubles with their application process, I just had to share the app process for Oz med schools:

    1. Test (2 essays, 200 odd MCQ)
    2. Application form (2 sides) - fill in the dots OCR scannable type + academic transcript
    3. Interview (30 mins)
    4. Start med school

    No essays! No letters of reccomendation! App form took about 20 mins to fill out!!! One form for all four schools!

    Will get interview in Sept, hopefully will start in Jan/Feb.

    Sweet.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Direct quote:

    "Consideration of letters of reference and testimonials form no part of our selection procedures and should not be submitted."

    Got interview offer last night - simply had to tick a couple of boxes and fax it back.

    AMCAS should be this simple.

    Keep smilin' folks. ;)

    I think things would have been easier had there been only 4 med schools in the US. With so many schools and applicants, problems are bound happen.

    In case you hadn't noticed, tidy_kiwi, there are a lot of people in genuine distress over what is happening with AMCAS, and we don't really want to hear your gloating. Very poor
    form, in my opinion.

    Oz is another term for Aussie, which is short for Australian. :)

    Also the magical land in "The Wizard of Oz" in which Dorothy (& her little dog Toto too) have many adventures and suprises. Then they go home.
