Members don't see this ad.
I just got a call and e-mail from thompson prometric (the testing center) saying that all their tests at my site are re-scheduled. So I go to their website to find out what to do. All links refer me back to the AAMC web page and no phone numbers exist where I can talk to a live person. So I call AAMC and they said I'm regestered and good to go but they don't have a way of contacting thompson for at least a week... b/c their boss is out?. Great, now all the seats are gonna be full by the time I figure out who is right. AAMC says I can register at another site but they might not refund me. WHAT? Anyone else have to deal w/ this crap?

and if anyone knows what I should do, I'd really appreciate the advice:thumbup:


Sorry, I wish I did. I emailed the AAMC about not being able to find a spot in April. They apologized for the inconvenience. The only date closer to April is May 16th and that is 3hrs away from home.
I wish they'd have more testing centers, and soon. :eek:

I live in chicago and I tried to sign up for a spot on the May 31st test date and every testing center in Illinois is filled up throughout that date. They don't even have ONE seat available...so I'm going out of state to take mine :(

....I wonder how many seats/date??
Need not worry though. Last time I complained about having to drive 3 hrs to take an exam, my father reminded me of taking boards across the country, sleeping in a foreign bed, traveling, etc etc etc. So it's good to be flexible these days.
