Still waiting on my completion e-mail...
How long has it been since you turned in your supplementals? They lost mine and didn't find out until 4 weeks after I turned mine in. They said to give them 10 business days to send out a complete email so if its been longer than that... call them up.
Interviewed here today. PCOM is such a great school!
The interview, along with breakfast and tour, was very laid back and conversational. It seems like the majority of people in my group got asked Why PCOM and why philadelphia
Still no interview =\ completed 09/06
Do interview invites come via mail or email?
They come via email. Also, you may get an interview before you get a "complete" email. As what happened to me
This also happened to me. They deposited my check on 8/18 and I didn't find out they lost my app until last week. Still not complete yet...
Anyone interviewing tomorrow: do NOT base your opinions of the students from what you see tomorrow.
Head and neck exam for first years. Second years? They just had an exam that covered six weeks of material so they should be on cloud nine--talk to them tomorrow
Congratulations on your interview! Can you tell me more about the structure of it? Committee? Open/closed file? Was it a group interview? My interview is tomorrow. Thanks!
Congratulations on your interview! I was hoping you could explain the structure of the interview. Committee or individual? Open or closed file? Was it group interviews? My interview is tomorrow. Thanks
Thank you! It is a committee/panel interview. You will have it with 2/3 faculty members. It is open file and no group interviews. Good Luck!
Got an invite today to interview on 10/3!
Congrats! Are you in state?
Thanks and yes, I am in state.
New Jersey =\ Haven't heard back from them yet. Sigh. Losing hope haha.
They don't even give ya a weeks notice?esp. this early in the cycle. I hope I have more notice than that if I get an invite.
Anyone interviewing tomorrow? I just got into philly about 2 hours ago. Staying at the hilton. PM me if your here
I will be!! Good luck and see ya there!
likewise! see you both soon!
Just got my secondary completion email. I swear I mailed in my check like 3 weeks ago. Now just hoping for an interview. (OOS)
e-mailed secondary 9/8, fee 9/14, received e-mail for completion 9/29
interview invite here today. i was complete over a month ago. i'm surprised they don't give you a choice of days. Interviewing on halloween! trick or treat?
Congrats! I have been complete since 9/7, hopefully I will hear something soon.
Info in my MDApps. Congrats to everyone with interviews and best of luck to those still waiting!
Those of you who have interviewed- When did they tell you that you should expect to hear back with a decision? I interview Monday and I'm wondering how long after that I will have to wait.
I think that means you get to wear your Halloween costume to the interview instead of the normal suit attire
hahaha I think you're right.
They said they we should hear a decision within 2 weeks on the interview. The send their decisions through snail mail, so be sure to look out for it!
Hey, can someone in the school please verify with me..
Does PCOM have a cutoff for mcat subscores? I have a 27 with 6 verbal, and a gpa of 3.86, and I'm not sure if I should even bother to apply.
It'd be great if anyone can get back to me before I use up my 50 bucks for their secondary. Thanks!
You should definitely apply. I have friends that have gotten a six in verbal. you have a great gpa and did great on the other sections of the mcat. Good luck
Sorry I didn't mention that I go to pcom. If you have any other questions feel free to ask
For those who have gotten interviews or are current students, how many of you are from California or other nearby states? Just asking since I heard that there's somewhat of a big regional bias..
Thanks a lot for the encouragement, beeDOodle. I'll def give it a shot, and keep you posted if I ever get some love from PCOM!
Definitely a big regional bias. That being said, I know of at least 4 people from Cali in my class.
II for 10/10. 3.6 cgpa, 3.6 sgpa, 30N, IS. woohoo
I'm from CA and have interviewed this cycle. Though I kind of fall into the nontraditional category, my best advice is to apply as early as possible and make sure you communciate your commitment to medicine. From talking to students in current classes it sounds like the number of CA students hovers around 4-5 per class.
There are many more than 4-5 from Cali per class. Although I'm sure it varies my class has a large number if people from Cali
I'm not sure that PCOM has a HUGE bias. Just like most schools, more people from the immediate area apply as opposed to people from the opposite coast. Therefore there are going to be more in state residents than from CA.
Received my complete email back on 9/6 and haven't heard anything back yet. Getting a little anxious
OOS btw....not that hearing any news of regional bias makes me feel any more assured.
~70% of class is from PA, so roughly 189 of the 270 are from PA. I am not certain of this, but I can definitely speculate that PA residents didn't make up 70% of all applications to PCOM.
Combine that with our Dean of Admissions saying that they have an in-state bias leads me to believe that they have an in-state bias.
there go my chances
There definitely is an in-state bias because PCOM wants its graduates to stick around PA/NY/NJ/DE area.
But to all you out-of-state'rs, I wouldn't lose hope if your application is strong. If you have a weak application, then don't keep your hopes up.
Not trying to sound discouraging, just being realistic.
