    Hello all of you who had to endure the AMCAS fiasco from last year. I am sure you were very happy to see that AMCAS was nice enough to leave your applications from last year somewhat intact. Make sure you check every field!
    As i went to print mine out, i found a big mistake. AMCAS took the liberty to change my mom's job into a professor of a college, and my dad is a health care provider. That is a little funny since my mom hasn't worked a day in her life and my dad can't even take care of himself, never mind someone else! Good luck to all of you! this is OUR year! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    They have weird classifications for allied health professionals b/c they lump them together....at my Finch interview, the doctor asked me if my dad was a pharmacist, optometrist, and a dentist all at once! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> He thought my dad was superman!

    That is a good question, i suggest you e-mail them and let them know that we have all found this recurrent issue. I am sure they will understand, after all they know how many mistakes they made last year!
    I am too wondering if these mistakes were transmitted last year. If so, that information really conflicts with what i wrote in my personal statement! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    Yeah, I had the same problem...my dad became a manager or something and my mom a business owner. Luckily I caught the problem before I submitted.
