Arrg! Do you know what a pain in the ass is? Applying to Medical School. Especially Columbia. They're one of the last schools to switch over to the AMCAS system and yet their secondary application still requires the same whole slew of information. How's that for a waste of time?
Anyway, if you aren't in the know then you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. That's fine. I'm just saying that I've been busy filling out applications and writing essays and I'm getting rather irritated by the whole business.
Got this email from Columbia just today:
In response to concerns about the Course History Section within the P&S Secondary Application, this section has been removed from our application. If you were already in the process of filling out your application, you will no longer see this page. When you print out your copy of the completed application, you may see this section, but in a blank format. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
P&S Admissions Office
They just realized the incredible waste of time their redundant course section is and so they have removed it. That's great - but I already filled it all out making that effort now officially 100% wasted.
