    Hey did we ever get another person to confirm that (blank = priority wait list ) cutetooth is probably telling the truth but it just doesn't smell right

    I also believe it :) But I wonder why those with a priority status don't have to confirm a spot like regular alternates do? I'm sure a lot of the priority people have acceptances at other schools

    Anyone know when the Dec. 1 acceptance deposit is due? I'm probably going to call them right after the deadline to find out how many people put one down :)

    Just received an e-mail from Stephanie at 12:30pm telling me I've been accepted!!!!!!!!! I was one of the individuals who had a blank status and did not receive a wait list letter in the mail, so I guess the priority status conspiracy was correct. Good luck to everyone!

    I've been following this thread for LECOM and I really appreciate all your responses! its kept me sane for this application process..:)

    I interviewed oct 26 and got no reply on dec 1 with a blank in my LECOM portal (and AADSAS) and called last wed about my status. She said that my position is favorable and to wait for January for the second round of acceptances.

    As for the deposits, I remember them at the interview saying the accepted students have a 2 week deadline to turn them in. Maybe the committee is using the last half of December to re-evaluate the alternate spots.

    I decided to check back on my status today and it switched from blank to
    "The Admissions Committee has made a decision on your application. You will receive an official letter in the mail within 30 days." Does that mean I am off of the priority and onto the regular waiting list? #demoted

    If I was betting I would say you will get an email saying your accepted or they got ride of the PWL and now everyone is on the alternate list ... most likely the first thoe

    Did anyone else get accepted today at 12:30pm? I'm trying to figure out if the acceptances today were massed-emailed or more of an individual thing. :)

    Thanks on the congratulations! Just a heads up, after I received my acceptance e-mail today my status, which was blank, has updated to: "The Admissions Committee has made a decision on your application. You will receive an official letter in the mail within 30 days."

    So did everyone that was put on the alternate list receive a letter, too? Still haven't received a letter and was told I was an alternate on Monday.

    I guess? I have no idea since so many people are getting so many different types of responses, etc. I received a letter at the beginning of this week, and it was dated December 2, but that's just me!

    Nope, my status had that "decision has been made" update around the same time as NguyenDDS. I'll just expect the worst and hope for the best. =)

    Keep us posted. One question to ask is if the list has been ranked. I am assuming were we ranked before and the top 150 or so were given offers for acceptance or priority. How many were on the PWL and WL?

    If they receive about 35 deposits (from what we discussed earlier) from 100 acceptances... it would seem they would need almost 300 acceptances to fill in 100 seats. What do you think?

    4. If accepted in Jan, what is the deposit timeline?
    5. Will they wait until they are finished interviewing or are they planning on pulling people of the list soon?

    is anyone else curious about their criteria for admissions? i have seen some people who were accepted with much lower stats. it seems kind of random to me

    lolol I really hope a lot of people decline acceptances, alternate spots, priority spots, interview spots :D



    I believe the interview matters a lot. I think they are looking for people who they think are the best fit for PBL? I don't know.

    No I just realized that it changed last night. The last time I checked was some time last week. I wonder why they aren't treating every blank status application the same!:xf:

    I agree! I still have a blank status. QL17 - did you still have a blank status before you got the acceptance or did your portal status change?
