    I quite liked the school that I saw last year, as well as the faculty that I spoke to. Scranton looked like a very nice place as well. I was accepted but withdrew for another school. I'd hope people won't be bothered by what has happened with them the last application cycle and apply as usual.

    Considering it's past 6 at their offices, we're not getting PINs anytime today.

    same here. just got the pin.

    here are the questions for those still waiting:

    2) Choose one attribute from the above list, and describe one personal experience that best exemplifies that attribute.
    3) Given TCMC's unique missions and values, please tell us why you feel you are a good fit for our institution.
    4) TCMC values diversity and is committed to maintaining an inclusive environment. How do you think you can contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion?
    5) Using 1 - 3 sentences, explain how your admission to TCMC could assist in addressing the health care needs of northeastern Pennsylvania.
    6) If you could speak directly to the Admissions Committee, explain why you should be admitted to The Commonwealth Medical College.
    7) Do you verify that you are able to perform essential functions listed in (click on link)

    (to those who are having trouble w/ pin, they should have sent one out today)

    on that note, is anybody having trouble paying the fee for the secondary app?

    thank you!:oops:

    The message of the Dean says they are looking for people who wants to commit and stay in Pennsylvania. So if you're someone who wants to be flexible and go back to your hometown someday........just a heads up!

    email them again if they said they're working out the kinks because I had to remind the lady that I haven't gotten it after that initial email and she sent me my pin within hours. i guess being persistent is key

    for the first question, it says to list attributes and there is a 2000 character max. are you all simply listing them or also writing something for each attribute too? by just listing them it's like only 100 characters lol

    Hey so has anyone recently checked the Admissions Interview Status? Mine says "No appointment to be scheduled for application year 2012." Does this mean I have already been rejected??? :( My application was complete on 7/1.

    From my 'complete' email:

    "Those applicants that are selected for an interview will be contacted immediately via email with instructions for arranging a date and time. All others will be given notification via email as well."

    My app status says the same thing as yours, but I believe this email more. If we are actually rejected we should get an email to confirm.
