    I just received this message from my advisor, sounds like they're still just stirring the pot. Hope it helps.


    1. The following are messages from AAMCAS to Pre-Med advisors:

    Mon, 7 May 2001 11:31:05
    We are aware that the AMCAS application is experiencing
    performance-related issues, and are working currently to take corrective
    measures.

    As many of you have concluded in your postings to the Listserv, the
    issues the AMCAS application is experiencing are server-related. During
    the coming week, AMCAS will be adding both additional memory and CPUs to
    the database server, which will then allow us to add additional
    application servers in a load-balanced environment. The application is
    likely to continue being very slow at least through the end of this
    week. AMCAS will continue monitoring application performance on a
    regular basis, and will keep you posted throughout the process.

    We know that our application's insufficient performance creates a great
    deal of stress for both you and your advisees, and we appreciate your
    patience and support.

    One of our internal servers will be shut down for maintenance at 6pm
    (Monday, May 7). This will also shutdown the AMCAS application, which
    depends upon our internal server for user login capability. This server
    will remain down until approximately 10 am on Tuesday, May 8.

    Hey, it's my turn.

    Just bringing this to the top :)

    By the way, thanks for posting this. I think it's a good sign that AAMCAS took the time to let us in on the situation (as if we hadn't figured it out already). Maybe, however, the time would have been better spent trying to FIX the f#&$*ng application!
