    LECOM Alternate/Waitlist 2020-2021

    Thought I'd create a quick thread for LECOM alternate/waitlists since it seems like loads of people are on it and the general thread is getting pretty long. While we wait for movement, maybe we can share where we're waitlisted? and if we're on the waitlist or alternate. Alternate at LECOM SH...

    [DO] Touro-Nevada vs LECOM-Seton Hill

    I am honored to have gotten two acceptances in this cycle to Touro Nevada and LECOM Seton Hill. Honestly, I've heard many things about LECOM on both sides of the fence, but not much about Touro Nevada (this campus in particular).

    LECOM Elmira: Anyone know if it will be in this cycle on AACOMAS?

    I know LECOM Elmira set a goal to start 2020, and I assumed it would be like LECOM-B and involve a separate application. Anyone know if there is word about a common application (as Erie and Seton Hill are combined)? Or better yet, any word that there were indeed no delays and will open on...

    Hello! I'm a current MMS student and most likely going to go the LECOM-B next year, because of the conditional acceptance that's tied into the masters.

    Hello everyone, I am a rising junior and am currently on the fence about LECOM's Early Acceptance Program. The program would guarantee me a seat at the school as long as I finish the required classes and keep the gpa at the level they want. However, the program also requires that I do not take...

    Since the beginning of December, I've been in a bit of a bind. I received acceptances to VCU, LECOM, and Nova.
