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. Mon, 7 May 2001 17:24:53 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. 2.
