    I assume that it means you are an alternate to interview, like they may like you but want to keep you on hold while they interview other candidates first? I feel it could still go either direction. Just speculation though.

    I got a similar letter from multiple campuses, including LECOM, and I received an interview a few weeks ago!

    When I received my secondary from Erie, I went ahead and completed the Brandenton app too. I got an email from Brandenton about a week later saying I was invited to fill out a secondary. Does it cause a problem applying to both campuses before receiving an invite for the other?

    I emailed them asking about this because I did the same thing. Respondent said they do not mind. I did not have to fill anything else out or for a second time.

    Included my ACT score but have noooooooo idea when I took it (did we take that as juniors or seniors in college?), so I left the date blank. Anyone else do this same thing?

    I just ended up leaving the date blank, so hopefully that's okay since it said it wouldn't affect our application. I haven't been in undergrad for 2 years, so I don't think I can get in anymore.

    Edit: Blah just looked, and I'm able to see the date /:
    Oh well!

    Gotcha! Yeah that shouldn't be a problem. If you have an MCAT score, they probably won't even look at your ACT score.

    Yeah my MCAT is part of my application, so I'm really doubting it will matter. I don't even really understand how they can use that metric lol.

    Not going to lie, I'm losing hope of getting an interview. I submitted the secondary on 7/7. I'm in-state, cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.6, and MCAT 506.

    A couple of weeks ago, I got a message saying I was under the 40th percentile. I assumed that was the end of it, however...today I got an email saying that Bradenton would like to consider me for the Class of 2018 and offered me a secondary. anyone else get that?

    I got that first message and submitted my ACT scores. The secondary was immediately available to me after completing that first part.

    I'd stay hopeful. I have similar (slightly higher) stats and am also IS and got a II.

    Also, it is way too early in the app cycle to start losing hope.

    If you look through this thread, a lot of people got that message. It appears to have been an error of some sort.

    So I'm a little confused. I received invitations from both LECOM-Bradenton and Erie campuses to complete the secondaries yesterday and completed them both. I received an email this morning thanking me for applying and stating that I will receive a secondary soon, should complete it asap, etc. Was this most likely just a mass email?

    I received the same email and then I think about 3 days later I received the secondary email. I was confused at first too, but that email seems like a good sign! :)

    Edit: oops I'm sorry. You already SUBMITTED your secondaries, and then got the email. I am not sure in this case. My apologies.

    To those who are wondering, the pharmacy building and DO building are one building. Its the one with the green window. Only dental gets it own building (blue windows).
