    Hey, for some of you that are on the waitlist, what are your statistics? I just want to know, what kind of students are getting waitlisted! Also, does anyone know when LECOM will stop interviewing?

    What is approx pharmacy class size at LECOM - Bradenton? Wasn't it like 90ish?

    Also does anybody know the name of the new apartment complexes on lake wood ranch? I think they were building one across the street from LECOM.

    To those of you that interviewed on 4/19 when were you invited for an interview. I applied in the beginning of Feb. but haven't been asked to interview yet, But I haven't been denied either. Does anyone know if they wait til the end to send out denial letters? Does anyone know if they interview through May or do they stop at the end of April? Thank you!

    You're right, sorry. I meant around no more than 180. That is what Lauren told all of us during the interview on 3/8.

    LECOM increases their class size for this coming Fall to ~145 - 149. Lost Creek was built across from the school. Other choices are Springs, Yacht Club, Lighthouse Cove.

    That was what my portal said when I got accepted, so perhaps that's what's happening? If so, congrats! :)

    It means they've made a decision. Depends on when you interviewed. I interviewed on April 12th. I called Lauren this past Wednesday she said rejection and waitlists for my group have been sent out already. Since I wasn't part of that she said they're looking at my application very favorably. So from my understanding if you interviewed last week it might be a bad thing. If it is earlier than that then it is likely good news. My portal status also changed on Friday to this. Hopefully we're in =D

    My interview was on the 03/22 and I wasn't in any of the group just like you. My portal was saying A decision has not been made and when I called Lauren she told me I wasn't rejected and not waitlisted either, They just change my status on friday. Finger crossed.

    If you aren't waitlisted or rejected, and a letter is coming within 10 days, you're in. :thumbup:

    (At least, that's how it was for me.)

    I just got an interview for May 10th! Completely surprised by this, but looking forward to the interview. I have already accepted another school but would probably accept LECOM if I get in.

    They're the same thing.

    Also, YanYan what's your first name if you don't mind me asking. We were in the same interview group on 4/12. I got accepted after my portal status changed. Looks like if it changed it is a good sign!

    Congratulations on your acceptance jimmyat!! I believe there were two groups on the 4/12 interview date. I was in the 12:45 pm group. I will send you an PM for my first name.

    ROFL, we'd have people listening to lectures in the halls and parking at nearby gas stations if that were the case (and parking is quite packed as it is).

    Good luck to all the applicants, about to finish my 3rd year and start rotations, but maybe I'll see some of you during my academic rotation :)

    Does any1 have any updated status for interview on April 19th? Mine still shows that "The Admissions Committee has not made a decision on your file. We will notify you as soon as a decision has been made" :confused:
    Is it mean I am waitlisted? :(

    No, you are not waitlisted unless you get an official letter from the school indicating that you are waitlisted. Since you interviewed on 4/19, please give it at least a week for the admissions committee to make their decision. If I remember correctly, Lauren mentioned that it may take up to 30 days for them to respond. From the previous posts, it appears that LECOM-B provides a response very promptly if they have the intention of rejecting you or placing you on the waitlist. If you didn't receive anything in the mail from LECOM-B as of yet, the chances are the admissions committee has not made a decision on your file yet. Don't worry. Everyone's portal status says that after they interview. Once they make a decision, they will update the status on the portal. Relax and don't worry!

    NoobHealer, I just sent you a PM. Let me know if you have any questions. They send out acceptances, rejections and waitlist information via snail mail. The email is primarily used for scheduling interviews.

    Has anyone gotten rejected after interviewing at LECOM or do they just put every person that doesn't get accepted on the alternate list? I've read a million posts from previous yrs and have never seen a post interview rejection, however I can see how those rejected wouldn't want to post..... Also I set up a topic for ppl on the Alt list to keep each other informed on the situation...

    Hello Guys,

    I just spoke with Lauren, she told me that they are looking at my file Favorably and I should keep checking portal. She said everyone that interviewed on 4/19 should hear something by May 19th.

    Anyone from 4/19 received an acceptance yet?

    I think you are right because I heard the number of waitlist is actually the same or even more number of acceptance so that the school is guarantee not losing revenues when accepted candidates cancel their seats...
