Members don't see this ad.
Considering that most online app status pages use only our aamc ID, ssn & DOB, what's the possibility of adcoms accessing our status @ various schools to find out where we've been offered interviews (i.e. if they need to decide between several applicants)? May seem paranoid, but I was thinking @ it esp. after the scandal w/ Princeton & Yale college admissions. Anyone any thoughts? :confused:

That's why Penn sent out an email that they were adding passwords to their site. ("Due to recent events in the media...")

oh, yeah--I just saw your thread on the forum listing. Thanks.

I wish at least the UC's would use passwords on their status sites. UCSF is the only UC doing that so far.
