They are very notorious and just do things accordingly to their heart's content. Their rules can only be interpreted the way they want them to be interpreted. One would think they would have the mentality of thinking through things more rationally because of their higher education. Somehow, they seem to have lost the mentality and the compassion of what it entails to be a physician. They are running a profitable business disguised as a non-profit educational organization.

I don't buy the whole playing fair argument. They will be back to their old tricks soon enough. I have 100s of pages of documents I had to submit to them before they agreed to allow me to have testing accommodation on my third try with some seroius muscling by a lawyer.
