    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    I didn't see a thread for this specific group of people, so I decided to start one.

    I had everything for LECOM-B done in August. Immediately I saw they had issue with my statistics class, which was heavily on calculus, so I sent them the course syllabus.

    Today I got an interview invite from them so apparently the issue with my statistics class has been resolved. I'll be going there on October 20.

    How about anyone else who is applying here for Fall 2012 admission?

    pharmer1982- When did you notify them about your statistics class issue? They still haven't made a decision on whether my AP scores satisfy their calc requirement since the only 4 I got was on the AB subscore of the BC test.

    They didn't notify me of it. When they gave me an email back in Sept 6 saying my application was processed and gave me a link to the LECOM portal to check my application status , I went there and saw that my stats class was marked as "Requirements Not Yet Met". I immediately emailed them and got a reply back saying that they would pass it along to the admissions committee for their review 2 days later.

    However, my stats class still shows as being red flagged but yet they gave me an interview invite regardless. Either they forgot to update it or are assuming I will be fulfilling it this fall or next spring. I emailed them again a few hours ago, and worst case would have to attend to interview and talk to them face to face about it.

    My PharmCAS application is processed and now I'm waiting for PharmCAS to mail my application to LECOM. Can anyone tell me about the supplemental application? Is it long and what type of questions they ask? Thank you.

    Thanks for your response. How long did it take them to send you an invitation for interview after you submit your supplemental application? Thanks

    Hi!! I am from California and is currently a P1 at Lecom bradenton. Does anyone know if we need to get a new driver license and license plate for Florida? I heard we can only become resident of one state. I am thinking about going back to CA after graduation so I am not sure if I should do that.

    I got an update from Lauren a week ago and she said the admissions committee approved my stats course and that she forgot to update it on my LECOM portal page. :cool:

    I am planning on going to the interview at LECOM-B on October 20th, flying into Tampa (cheaper airfare around $398 base price if I do it this way) and driving to my hotel in Bradenton.

    I don't think there's a hotel shuttle :confused:
    I'm staying at the Wingate (which they said is closest to school - 3 miles) and then getting a taxi i guess. You?

    I think most hotel shuttles only go between the airport and the hotel. ACPHS-Vermont is the only one I know that has a hotel-to-campus shuttle with the Hampton Inn.

    I think there is no difference with renting a car if you're under 25, just that they would have trust issues.

    I'm going cheap all the way (hotel and car).

    I think there are not a lot of people who are SDN members. At my other interviews I bumped into maybe 4 on average who were on SDN.

    you don't. Bradenton processed a little bit slower than Erie.
    I got invited to interview Oct 20th but I rescheduled because i have UOP the next day so it's risky.

    You should hear back in a week or so I would say.

    My app was processed on 9/6, so it did take roughly about a month for them to send me the invite. But I'm just one case....

    Hey guys- If you have any questions for LECOM admissions I suggest registering for and participating in the virtual fair that's going on today. You can join a chat room and ask questions to current LECOM faculty, students, and admissions staff. It was really helpful!

    I'll also be at the November 3rd interview at 7:45am :) I think I'm staying with a friend in Tampa the night before so I'm a little closer to Bradenton. Very excited! Congrats everybody!
