Compared to previous years, does anyone have any idea know how much the screening process (i.e., post AMCAS, pre-secondary) has been impacted by this year's AMCAS screwups? Have people been spending excessive sums on schools they otherwise really wouldn't have had a shot for because there's little or no screening in place? Just curious (and nearly broke)... Better question: what IS the point of preliminary applcations through AMCAS if they're not used for screening. Maybe I'm just not getting it.
