I received this email from the Princeton Review. Dear MCAT Students: This is important information that pertains to you. Read on. _____________________________________________ Chronicle of Higher Education - April 23, 2001 Bugs Delay Web-Based Applications for 115 Medical Schools Prospective medical students will have to wait a month longer than usual to receive their 2002 medical-school applications. That's because some bugs were discovered in the new Web-based application being offered this year by the American Medical College Application Service. Instead of receiving paper forms on April 1, students will have to wait until May 1, when the Web version becomes available. That means they will have to move a little faster to get their work completed by June 18, the date they can begin submitting completed applications. In previous years, applicants have been able to choose between a conventional paper application and the Web-based version. This year, all of the applications will be online. The American Medical College Application Service is a nonprofit service that processes applications to 115 medical schools. It's run by the Association of American Medical Colleges. "I suppose having less time to complete an application could be an extra stress on top of everything else when you're applying to medical school," says Tim Clarke, spokesman for the American Medical Student Association. "But as long as the delay affects everyone equally," he adds, "I'm not sure it will be a major problem."
