    Anyone applying here?
    I just received my supplemental invite a couple of days ago. Anyone know if we should or shouldn't upload a picture?

    I just submitted my supplementary and when I clicked on "check status" there's this document called " SP Prerequisite Records Form (PDF*)" are we supposed to fill that out now and send it to them?


    Thanks!

    Hey for the SP Prerequisite Records Form, it asks for our LLU ID, and my question is where do we find this?

    does the financial aid app have to be completed in order for our application to be considered "complete" or can we do it another time?

    thanks!

    I received an interview invitation through the phone. They called me and had a couple of dates that I could select for an interview (all weekdays). Mine is scheduled for this week.

    Sure, I have a 3.80 Overall GPA, 3.75 science GPA, I have a little more than a year of retail pharmacy experience and a year and a half of organic chemistry research experience. I also have held leadership positions and have extracurriculars too.

    It was pretty relaxed for the most part. The first writing portion was very simple, one page max. Then I had 2 one-on-one interviews with 2 separate faculty. The first faculty member was super nice and it didn't even seem like an interview, just a conversation. The second professor was also nice, but a bit more intimidating, because he wanted to make sure I knew exactly what Loma Linda is about (i.e their purpose statement) and why you would want to go there over all the other schools. As long as you can talk about your experiences and your motivation to go there, you should be fine. Then you end the day by watching a 30 minute video. I was also the only one that interviewed that day so that was kind of unique.

    No, i'm sure they will like you =) I think it's their way of telling us that they received all of our paperwork already

    Hi everyone! I just got a call from admissions notifying me that I was accepted!! However, I am most likely going to decline as I got into USC which is one of my top choices. Good luck to everyone else who is interviewing and applying!

    Im in the class of 2015. I me and my fellow classmate interviewed the last week of november and didnt get the acceptance call until late febuary.

    So no need to panic just just yet. A few students got the call like the week before also. Pretty much if you dont get the dreaded letter about a month after your interview then your probably ok.

    With grades like that you should be ok. It will then go down to your letters and essay.
    I had a low GPA all around, 3.2

    Got my interview invite yesterday! Will be going in on Tuesday Morning on the 17th!! For those of you that have been through the LOMA LINDA interview process...any tips and advice on particular types of questions they ask? Like do they put an emphasis on behavioral questions or like spiritual questions being that it is an SDA school. Also if anyone would just give me any info that would be helpful during the interview that would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

    It was with two professors, both were really laid back and the interview felt like more of a conversation than grilling. I had my interview mid December, so it took about a month. I think because of the holidays coming back to back that it took awhile.

    It was closed file when I interviewed...my two interviewers had nothing but a pencil and notepad infront of them.
