    Anyone who has been rejected post II did you receive any updates to your portal? Mine reverted back to all of the bullets for requirements, just wanted to see if this is a silent R. Thanks

    Yes, there is plenty of room to store luggage in the admissions office waiting area.

    Might not even mean anything but if you're rejected I assume you'll get mail. Silent rejections at PCOM seem to be for people that didn't receive an interview invite.

    Is there anything we need to do after paying our deposit online?

    Edit: I meant the admissions deposit once offered a seat

    Just make sure that the dates on the portal are filled in within 15 business days, nothing else to do on your part, they'll email you with an II if applicable.

    (Edit: read original post wrong, was referring to secondary fee)

    I'm also wondering this. Do we just pay the 250$ now and wait until further communication if we're definetly attending?

    Pretty much. There’s another deposit due somewhere down the line I believe it’s due in April.

    Any one know if there will be dedicated board time and a pass/fail grading system starting next year?

    I think during my tour, they said something about pass/fail but I cannot remember. Also, wondering if anyone heard anything about the board study time. Thanks!

    Is there an accepted students page or anything that could direct me toward housing in the area and things of that nature?

    I was accepted on Monday, and prior to this my portal showed all the bullets of the requirements! I dont think I checked it before the interview, but after the interview that's what it looked like until I got the acceptance in the mail. Hope that helps!

    I'm not sure my actual complete date because there was an issue with one of my LOR and I had to go through this whole process to have it accepted and that was happening in September. So, I would guess my complete date was late September.

    I had a similar experience. Fair questions, but no reaction which made it hard to turn into a human conversation. I felt like I could have just responded as well had I written essay responses. I think that's just his style/intensity, but it really caught me off guard and I was disappointed that since it made me really nervous I wasn't 100% on my game. It is what it is, up to them/the universe now. I'm still really excited about this school--it's my top choice.

    So for reasons I don’t want to derail the thread with, I’m going to end up applying to DO schools in the next week. Is it too late to apply to PCOM? I saw a thread where people said November and early December were okay, but that just seems so late because I’ve really only been reading about the allo cycle.

    It's not too late for DO at all. In fact, if you have low stats, it's the perfect time.

    Hello, has anyone else gotten the following error message:

    "Select the relationship that best matches your legacy connection to PCOM: At least one value must be selected."

    I filled out the entire form, but it is not allowing me to submit it because of this error. I am not sure why the error is popping up.

    Hi! I went to the open house yesterday and spoke with someone from admissions and they explained where they are right now in this application cycle. So if you're going to apply, submit your application like TODAY, lol. Since you've already applied to other DO schools, you're (hopefully) already verified. So I would submit that today, pre-write the secondary essay, and submit your supplemental as soon as you get it!

    If there are any current students in this thread, can you please refresh me on whether the lectures are mandatory/recorded? I know this was mentioned on interview day but after a few school visits they all seem to mesh together. Thanks in advance.

    I just had my interview yesterday. Lectures are recorded and are not mandatory for the most part (with the exception of OMM classes). There are some occasional days that are mandatory for lecture, such as when patients come in to talk about their conditions
