    Please tell me it's not just me who is having trouble with AADSAS! I was entering in my course information and then it kicked me out. Now I can't log back in.

    Is this the case with anyone else? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    It happened with me also, but I was finally able to submit my application. Keep trying, or try again later.

    I just got kicked out, too! I was in the last section of additional information and had just finished entering tons of work experience, extracurriculars, etc. :mad: I hope I didn't lose all of that work.

    Me too. Thank God I was getting tired and i logged out by chance. I would have been so pissed. I wrote all my EC and essay on word, but still it is so much work organizing it on the fields that they give you. Blah..now I'm back and i continued to log on, but it doesn't let me. You guys should email them.....and let them know you are pissed. I did.

    Yeah, it stinks, but get this: I already submitted my application, but they changed some of the coursework fields, so they asked me to reenter all of my coursework in a different way than I previously had. Go figure.

    when did they change the course work fields. The way they have the course work codes really sucks. I thought you would just have to put the course code after searching it before hand. This is horrible man.

    I had similar problems last year. It would be nice to see them iron out those problems this year but I guess not. When I pasted my personal statement last year, it would get reformatted and spaces between words would disappear. I also had problems logging in at times. Instead of raising fees, they should think about raising their IQ's.

    GavinC,
    How did AADSAS inform you that you need to change your coursework?

    Thanks!

    By the way, here are a couple of things that you should know when entering your coursework to make the processing of your application speedier. These are listed in the instructions (but who really reads those!?!)

    1. Only add six classes per session. If you have more than six classes, create a new session and add the remainder (If I took 7 classes in one semester, then I'd have two sessions: one with 6 classes and one with 1 class listed).

    2. The maximum allowed for "In Progress" sessions is two.

    3. The maximum allowed for "Planned" sessions is three. If you have more than three sessions planned, then eliminate some classes and make sure to include any dental school pre-reqs. Remember, the schools aren't going to care about planned courses for your history major, etc. -- but they will care to know whether you are planning to finish physics or biochem., etc.

    Good luck!

    I am so frustrated with AADSAS. They are temporarily down till 10AM and it is now after 11 and they are still not up and running. I think I am just going to print out the application and mail it in.
