    No, I didn't. I think when I called to schedule the date (which is the same as yours), I think she said they would send an email confirmation, but could have misheard. I imagine it will come in one way or another, just wanted to make sure I wasn't alone. Cheers.

    Any current students could talk about what kind of community service do LLU students do? Does LLU have free clinic?

    Stupid question: I just realized my app says "summer 2014" under "Start term." Is this loma linda's equivalent of fall 2014, or did I select the wrong term?

    If you're interviewing, make sure you leave early due to possible traffic. They are doing some construction around campus.

    Sooo... I've been complete since 8/19 and heard nada. I'm OOS, SDA, average MCAT, slightly sub-average GPA, excellent EC's, and awesome LOR's from SDA docs and SDA university faculty. Anyone have any insight? Do they do silent rejections?

    Where do most LLU graduates do their residencies? In California?

    How many do residencies associated with Loma Linda University Medical Center?

    Uh...missed a phone call from Loma Linda this evening!!! Ugh, I picked it up on the last ring, too. Got a voice mail from Dr. Roddy, I believe, asking me to call back. Have to call back tomorrow...

    Just for info's sake:
    MCAT: 31 (PS 12, BS 11, V 8)
    3.76 cGPA
    3.72 sGPA

    Complete 8/26/13
    II 10/9
    Interviewed 11/26
    Adventist and OOS

    I told my boyfriend and my sister, and I SOO want to tell my mom about the missed phone call, but both my bf and sis told me not to until I know for sure what the missed call was about. But I couldn't contain it, so I'm telling SDN. :)

    Edit: and just FYI, I got the phone call around 8:44-ish Maryland time. I'm just adding that in there because I was searching last year's thread and I couldn't find the time ANYWHERE. :(

    Just posting to confirm that acceptance decisions were made today. I recieved a call from Dr. Roddy letting me know I was accepted just after 8:00pm EST.

    They are right on schedule based on previous years.

    About the same for me. They'll probably continue to call today, so let's wait and see. Good luck on your other post-interview decisions!
