For me, it seems like AMCAS is the highly unnecessary 'middle-man' that businesses are trying to do away with. If AMCAS were smarter they would provide additional features such as: 1. Once a school accepts you, you can use AMCAS to accept or deny that particular school's acceptance. 2. On a similar note, you should be able to withdraw your application by clicking on the school, instead of having to contact each school individually, and losing track of which school has or hasn't received your remittance. 3. Schools should be able to provide their secondaries through AMCAS. i.e. once a school okays you for a secondary, a link will open on AMCAS that will allow you to fill out the additional essays, and pay with a credit card through AMCAS if you wish for that secondary to be processed at that school. 4. The redundancy in sending out transcripts to AMCAS and each of the individual schools at their request seems slow and clunky. We should be able to send our transcript updates to AMCAS for the schools to look at. 5. AMCAS should allow a section for electronic updates for student progress. i.e. a section where/when the school can be notified via electronic format of any new things that is/are going on with the student (new publication, honors... etc.) Just a small list, Comments?
