The example was for someone who hasn’t been verified by AACOMAS yet, and it went something like this: If you apply today, you would have to wait up to 4 weeks to be verified because of the high volume of applicants coming in. Then another week or so to receive your secondary. Now you’re in mid-December, and say you submit your secondary right away. It will still take them 15 business days to review your supplemental application. But remember, all of this is during the holidays so you have Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, etc. So everything takes longer than normal. Finally, say ALL of your information has finally been processed in January and your application is put into the pile. They have 8,000 other applications to review from people who applied before you did, so who do you think they are going to look at first?can you elaborate on what they told you as far as "where they are right now in this application cycle" ?
^ And this is NOT to discourage ANYONE. I’m just relaying the information that was given to me. PCOM is an amazing school, and you should definitely still apply. Just do it ASAP!!!
