For people who sent LOI's, did you send to both campuses? (Only applies to those WL at both)
Current WL applicant here. I have heard of people discussing letter of intents and have no experience with them. Can anyone shed some light on what to include other than the obvious? and are they really helpful or just annoying to the admissions committee?
I sent a letter of intent immediately after my interview but only to GA because that is where I interviewed and that was my top choice. I can’t honestly say how much it affected the admission committee’s decision but I was recently accepted after interviewing on 2/1. You can find out more info about how to write those letters online, but basically I just mentioned how much I loved the interview and that if offered a spot I would definitely take it. Hope this helps.

I think they will interview you for both schools if you applied to both.
I did apply to both schools but my interview invite only says south GA specifically so I'm not sure if they are considering me for both. Maybe I should mention something about it in my interview?

Has anyone heard anything from PCOM since their acceptance? I haven’t heard anything from them since receiving portal access.
It took some time but I’ve heard from financial aid and student affairs and all kinds of things. I was admitted on 3/12...hbu?

My email also only said I was interviewing for GA, but I mentioned that I applied for South GA during my interview and ended up with waitlist letters for both campuses.

Ok I’ll make sure to mention it in my interview. Thank you so much! Was your interview based off the 30 min assignment or more conversational?

Hey, so yea i got waitlisted on Thursday for both campuses. I holding fingers crossed maybe there is some movement. I sent letter of intent about 5 days, after I sent it directly to the South GA campus, director of admissions. I have a mail tracker, he read it like 4 minutes after I sent it and still got waitlisted. So I dont know

Can anyone confirm whether last Friday's interview was the last one for this cycle, or whether they still have more dates? Thank you, and congrats to all of you who got accepted :)

Is there a deadline to accept the stafford loans? Like a few days before April 14th, the date that the deposit is due, is still okay?

Hey guys congrats on getting through the interview cycle.

To those that did not receive an interview (here or any where else). This set back in no way determines your self worth or if you would make a good physician. If you have to go somewhere else for medical school. Understand that admissions is human and in no way a perfect process. If you have to reapply please take a realistic look at your application. Make improvements. Talk to people on the "What are my chances" and come back with a new fire in the next application cycle you are ready to apply. Prove everyone who doubted you wrong and we will be here to root for you!

To those of you on the waitlist. Keep the faith but start preparing for another application cycle. Yes I know it stinks hearing that but its important to prepare for the worst but hope for the best. There is a large deposit that will be due in May for many acceptances. I'm sure several will elect to attend another DO/MD school. Several of my classmates came off the waitlist in June/July. Just be ready for the call/email. Be prepared to start on day one. One reason several students fail in the first term is because they weren't prepared for the move to Suwanee, or something set them a couple days behind at the start of school. They simply got pulled off the waitlist very late and were not ready. Don't be that person!

To the guys/gals that will be attending GA-PCOM or South Georgia, congrats! Please don't do anything haha. RELAX. If you really need something to do. Work on putting yourself in the best possible position to be ready to go on day one. See the dentist, get your car fixed. Set up an easy meal plan that has appropriate calories, protein etc. Work on making an easy work out schedule. Set expectations with your family/SO so they understand what you are going to be doing over the next couple years. Don't hesitate to talk to several of your upperclassmen if you have any specific questions. A lot of us are really happy to help!

I’m not sure. And I may be wrong about this but I think I was told once by someone at financial aid that you can’t even apply for financial aid until after 4/17. I would call them and see what they have to say.

Second this and all of the advice of @getfat . Most of us are more than happy to offer what little wisdom we have. As you plan ahead, realize and accept that your initial plans probably won't cut it. I've seen many of my classmates struggle because they come in with some idea of how med school will work and refuse to adapt when expectations don't equal reality. Come in with a strong game plan that you're willing to adjust as you settle in.

Is there a Facebook group created for those attending the Ga campus?
Also, do you guys know if attendance is mandatory? And if it’s what percentage?
Thank you in advance :)
Class facebooks should be coming soon

Interviewed Mid March. got waitlisted 1 week post interview. Got off the waitlist today. I did have the contingent acceptance thing tho. also they are asking me to pay 1750 + 1500 by next week which i feel is really soon cause i need to get that much money in a short amount of time lol.... do you think it would be worth calling and asking for them to extend the deadline?

Was this for South Ga or GA? Also it should only be 1750 if anything by April 15.

I think if you check the traffic rules they can ask for the full deposit within a couple weeks as the schools now need to know people want to attend since they have to get those classes filled. Usually they do not give deadline extensions.

Hi guys. I interview march 15th, and got waitlisted on the 25th for the georgia and South georgia campus.
If you get off the waitlist do they also notify you by snail mail?
Also what are your thoughts on a letter intent?
Does it even make a difference?
Thanks in advance for your help

Yeah that's the portal! A deposit link is supposed to show up if we get accepted. I'm hoping that since there's a deposit for people that have been accepted on April 15th there will be some movement with decisions soon after

It's dated 4/5 and was also mailed that day (I'm OOS). I'm not surprised with the wait list decision though since the interview was late in the cycle but I'll still remain hopeful! :)

Hey guys! I interviewed March 15th and got wait listed to both campuses. I sent a letter of intent April 3rd (a little less than a week after getting my letters in the mail) and also had another DO physician that I shadowed submit a rec letter today. I would really love to go here...I know I probably just need to be patient at this point but are there any current students that have advice for me?

Hey guys anyone here, who had paid their deposit with an echeck? How long did it take to take the money from your account and to be reflected on your pcom page?
