    well in any case, i hope i get an interview next cycle so they can see that i ain't goin' anywhere. hah.

    hopefully, in the next cycle my interview will be a lot better (if i get one that is) and i won't be overshadowed again

    guys, my interview is 25th of April. It seems there are many on the Waitlist. What does it mean for people that are interviewing late in the cycle ?

    No..I'll be attending USC. The interview for me was not awkward at all. I was able to answer all their questions and could pull life experiences to situations that they were asking.

    It is not a stressful interview and was one of the more relaxed ones that I attended.

    the interview isn't that bad at all.

    i prefer one on one interviews quite frankly, so my interview wasn't that great. i at least know what to expect for next cycle, so if i'm interviewing here again next year i won't be as tense.

    and if it really is the last week of interviews thats great. hopefully this wait list can start moving. but then again, the girl i talked to was pre dent (last time i checked) so i'm pretty sure it was for dental school. her fb status just said lecom interview so i assumed that.

    and kobe, it means that you're competing for a smaller amount of seats. but at the end of the day, who knows what they're looking for. i feel like everything is still fair game for you

    It's almost May... I don't think anyone drop out :( they usually do it before April 'cuz April 5th is the deadline to give up multiple offers and stick to one.

    i was told mid to late may when i called a few weeks ago about the alternate list

    my guess is they're going to start giving out offers based off of stats and interest

    and how did you come up with 10-15 seats if she was vague?

    I just got a letter in the mail saying I am on the alternate list.

    They said they will let us know if we got accepted thru the 2nd week of July. I hope I can find out in May itself if i got in or not. So i can either prepare to move there or prepare to reapply AADSAS

    if your portal says that the "adcom has made a decision and you'll receive a letter" right after your interview, then you're on the alternate list. once you accept the alternate list spot, it will then be changed to something like "the adcom has accepted your position on the alternate list"

    I called LECOM this week and they gave very vague answers to my questions. When I asked if the class was full she said "we don't consider the class full until school starts" and when I asked how many people are on the alternate list she said it goes up and down each day and cant give a number. But dont get me wrong, she is very nice and I am glad they at least pick up the phone, unlike other schools.

    Also the facebook group is filling up but idk if its all dental students or not because some of the group members are pharm/med students.

    So does anyone else know how many people are on the waitlist? Or when their committee meets to make these decisions?

    Yeah my AADSAS got updated by LECOM also. It just says "Wait listed". I thought LECOM only used their portal.....Does anyone know how many people are on the waiting list now? Has it gone up/down?

    it keeps changing. if you ask, they'll just tell you that they can notify you until july.

    if they make any changes with our statuses, it's going to be via the aadsas portal.

    my aadsas acct. says "wait listed" as well. I also checked the FB group and it looks like one more person joined over the last day making it 98/100 possible seats. I'm sure some people who are in the group are not even attending, or perhaps they are pre-med or pre-pharm students who accidentally joined (wishful thinking)..but I am just hoping 98 seats really haven't been officially filled. This is so nerve-wracking and I feel like a crazy person or a LECOM stalker haha.

    if you peruse through the group you'll see that there are a lot of non dental school people, and there are people who aren't attending.

    also, if we were all just placed on a "wait list" according to aadsas, it wouldn't really make sense to include the hundreds of people on it if there were only 2 seats. just my thoughts though. my guess is like 10-15

    That's a good point. I guess we'll just have to wait it out since nothing is certain.
