    It honestly could take months, but that's not different from most schools. If they want to interview right away, they will. If they want to reject you right away, they will. If they want to hold off and interview you later in the fall/winter or even in the spring, they will hold off, and offer you an ii about a month in advance.

    Honestly I doubt that happens a lot. Sometimes people don't update their MDapps after they're accepted, don't put the right address on their apps or even just throw away the letter by accident. Since LECOM sends all rejection/acceptance by mail, there is a pretty good possibility that at least a few people will have some issue getting it.

    Hey guys so the portal says that my application is under review, but under my letters/credits folder it has that I am missing my mcat scores, secondary, and many of the pre-reqs... Could this just be that they actually haven't looked at my application yet?

    Yeah I have the same issue. I assume they will adjust for it this week because I just began my "under review" status.

    Does anyone know if LECOM still provides you with a DO letter if you aren't able to get one?

    I wouldn't count on it. My DO letter wasn't in before my interview and I was not offered a DO letter last year. Good luck interviewing, you can get in because I did. :cool::cool::cool::cool:

    Isn't it early for interviews to be going out? When did you submit secondary? Were you notified through email or just by checking the status page on the website?

    You're late to the party. IIs have been coming out since last week. LECOM starts interviews early (mid-late July).

    Just got a secondary application. :)

    The Erie campus is the most established and has the largest class sizes. Supposedly, both are excellent.

    I am in the same boat with you for interviews at both campuses. I just checked portal and received an interview, where did you see that "you will receive more info by email"?

    thats what it said under my "admissions status tab". I'm guessing they'll email us details when it gets closer to the interview date

    I tried paying for LECOM-E secondary about 2 weeks ago. However, my payment wasn't going through. They said not to submit another secondary and that they would contact me with further info on how to pay. I called them, left a message last Friday, and they haven't gotten back to me. Opinnions on what to do?

    It's Wednesday... so I think I would call them again to ask if they received your secondary. Did you get both the payment and secondary confirmation emails?

    For those who have received interview invites do you know approximately how long you were "under review"? All my required courses and mcat scores were checked off yesterday so I'm wondering how soon I can hear back. My stats are also pretty good (3.5/33).

    I'm interviewing 8/2 in Erie. I noticed in the handbook at the beginning of this thread that once accepted, you have 30 days to respond. So you basically have to decide even if you have a few other interviews that you haven't heard back from yet?

    I had the same question about a week ago. The 30 days is typically the time you have to put down your 500 or 1000 deposit to reserve your seat in the class. It doesn't mean you have to withdraw your apps from every other school. Schools can't see where you are interviewing or who has accepted you until the following spring. There is a separate thread on SDN all about it.

    LECOM-B did not even look at app yet they still are not in the required letters and credits. WTF.

    I really think my PHP LOR was horrible. I had what I though were strong stats.
    3.7 Overall GPA, 3.6 sciGPA 24 MCAT ( 8/8/8) 1,000s of clinical experiences as a volunteer, CNA and MA. 100s of non-medical volunteer hours that were meaningful ( Mentoring, etc) plus I am a Black female FL resident.

    Whats weird is that I submitted my supplemental on 6/26. I received an e-mail informing my my supplemental has been processed on 7/1. When I click on application D.O. though, it says that its in progress. I am considering calling them on Monday if I don't receive any updates. I hope this is not a silent rejection

    I think we should give them some time because there are a lot of things to consider from each applicant. i imagine them juggling applications around. if you call them, let us know what LECOM says.

    So I talked to my cousin, who told me to stop worrying about the application process. He applied last cycle and is starting this August as a first year medical student at LECOM. He submitted his application in mid-late July and didn't receive an interview invite until September. We just need to give LECOM time, so I apologize for my freak-out and I won't be giving them a call. If you guys have any questions, I can try to rely them to him and post the answers.
