    I wonder where the wait-list emails are?

    I'm going to pretend today is Nov 1. and Jan 5 will be Dec.1 :) Time will fly.. because the holidays are coming up. Finals are coming up. I hope everyone turns down LECOM.

    lol good plan and I hope so too! So much work to do in the next 3 weeks, so much work. I bet the WL comes via letter. I'm waiting for that 27% acceptance rate to turn into a solid 80% in a couple days.

    I feel like something went wrong. There is no way they handed out 100 acceptances today and only 6 ppl on predents getting in. Maybe tomorrow will be a different story...

    I have a feeling they didn't send all of them. 350 or so interviews and they claim to send out 100 acceptances and only 6 out of the 75 got accepted. Seems like another batch may be right around the corner. Just doesn't add up.

    lol, we all heard something different. Phone call, letter, and the latest news was the email which ended up being right. The letter for sure is the only thing that is consistent with all the interviewees.

    Do you think if we called and asked our status they would tell us if we've been waitlisted at least? This whole process is messing around with my emotions :- /

    I would wait til Monday to call. I know what you mean though, this entire process has crushed my confidence and made me sick to my stomach. At least all the gunners will have to give up their seats this month which means round two baby!

    Well now that this actually happened, what are we suppose to do? At least we can expect a massive turnover in the coming weeks. This is pretty exciting to think about.

    Well, stressing out about it all the rest of the night won't change the situation. I'm shifting my hopes to a second round acceptance. Good luck everybody! LECOM will be worth the wait!

    Hey yeah, I am confused by this. Do you mean that they have not sent out all 100 acceptances yet and that they are going to send more on Dec 14th? Or, do you mean that they are just sending formal letters on dec. 14th to all acceptances. Orrr, do you mean that they are sending waitlist letters on dec. 14??

    I don't know why but I have a bad feeling..in 30 days it'll be January and most likely a wait list or a rejection. I hope I am sooo wrong on this. Then again, we might just get the acceptance packet Monday :xf::xf:

    From the DO threads, it takes a week or two to receive the letter. Those who were accepted, WL, and rejected both had this update.

    Those that received this before the interview were rejected though. I'm still reading up on it! It seems that a lot were getting accepted letters after this message.

    I interviewed there. My status used to say something along the lines of "congrats, you have been selected for an interview"

    I was checking on Nov 30 and noticed it had been changed to blank, which it still is now

    A few hours before the acceptance email they updated the portal with this status. I'll be calling shortly to turn down the acceptance so I hope one of you will get my spot. I dunno how quick they will be to accept someone off the waitlist after someone turns down an acceptance but hopefully they waste no time. Best of luck to all of you!!
