    So, if I have yet to recieve either a waitlist letter OR a rejection letter, is it still plausible to get in at this point without those (basically, would I still be thrown into the "rolling admissions" category, or what?)???? What do you guys think?

    I think you should definitely get more information from admissions. Not sure if I would call though, maybe email. Or maybe you just missed the lucky voice mail! :)

    Are waistlist acceptance notifications sent via mail as well?

    I am wondering if LLU tracks mail to make sure it is delivered.

    Have rejection letters mostly already been sent out by this point? Or do they usually come deeper into the summer? Looking at older threads, I could not find any rejection letters sent this late or later.

    As far as I know, all regular admission application status letters have been sent out. At this point everyone should have received acceptance, waitlist or rejection. If you havn't received anything yet it would be best to contact them ASAP to find out your status.

    I spoke with them very recently and sent them updates to my application, bud they said that there has not yet been a decision made on my file, but that I will know by the end of June.....Anyways.. Are there any SDA's that are either on the waitlist or have recieved a rejection letter within the past month or so?

    I am SDA and received a rejection a little over a month ago. However they did recommend me to their Biomedical Sciences Post Bacc program. Anyone else doing this program or know the likelihood of me getting in next year if I do well?

    I am SDA and applied to LLU med school and was rejected. They recommended me to the biomedical sciences program and I am going bc I want to go to LLU for medical School. In my interview it was clear that they wanted to see that I could handle the curriculum of med school so it is my impression that this program is their way of seeing if you will succeed at Loma Linda for medical school.

    The only thing that worries me is that I talked to the admissions office today and they said that biomedical students aren't considered until final grades are in in June! That is so late in the cycle that I don't know if I should apply other places or just hope I do well and that LL likes me...so frustrating.

    Sorry for the delay. I don't know the exact number yet. But I think there was about 15 students (which was the most ever) this past year. Previously, the numbers were supposedly close to 8 to 10 students. I am hearing that there's going to be about 20 students this upcoming school year. It's been about 4-5 years since they built their new med school building so I guess they can hold a little bit more than before. :thumbup:

    Why don't you PM me for more info. I can refer you to someone that knows more info or I can just answer whatever questions you have. Because I had the same exact questions you had until I started digging for more information as I stated above. Have a good day! :)

    You guys should just look up last year's and the year before's threads. 2010 and 2011?

    It usually tells you when there should be movement for people in the wait-list.

    Every year, it's pretty much the same times.

    Good luck people! :thumbup:

    For some reason LLU has been holding my acceptance. They just acknowledged my withdrawal this week. Hope that spot gets to one of you on wait list :luck:

    2010~2011 thread seems to indicate that wait list movements should be happening between now and early/mid July. Keep those fingers crossed =)

    Anyone hear of any waitlist movement today? A couple of sources indicate there should be some acceptances going out today through Monday.

    Waitlistee and long time lurker here....at this point is there a reasonable chance to get off the waitlist? I need to make future plans but being unsure if I will be in medical school or not makes it tough to do so....

    Unfortunately, no one can predict the waitlist movement. I have heard of rare situations in which people have been accepted the day before orientation.

    I just got a call this morning from Dean Edwards offering me a position! I interviewed in February and was waitlisted in April. There's still hope!
