    I just got accepted to ICO!!! Yes...life is beautiful!!!!

    Anybody else??

    However....do you think I should still retake the OAT on the 19th....my scores where high enough, otherwise they would have said something...all they said was to graduate and take microbiology...however I did indicate to them that I was going to take it? I need some help...as of now..I don't want to take it!!

    Congratulations!!

    I wouldn't retake the OAT (unless you've been spending a lot of time studying for it). I would recomend you call them just to make sure if you need to retake it. But it seems like they accepted your scores.

    I think they would want you to retake the test, if it was only a pre-acceptance. If the acceptance letter did not mention anything about the OAT, then you were accepted (not just pre-accepted).

    Again, congrats! :)

    Back to studying I go!!

    Don't worry, eyegirl... I'm sure yours will be on its way as soon as they get your OAT scores.

    GT > CONGRATS !!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: I wouldn't take the OAT if you have an acceptance letter in your hand. (as long as ICO is your first choice). If you're gunning for another school I would retake.

    CONGRATS AGAIN!

    Eyegirl2007,
    Remember at your interview the admissions lady said you will be receiving a letter in a couple weeks. She said that you could have four possible letters, acceptance, denial, put on hold until OAT scores, or just put on hold? I gotta go call them right now to get this OAT thing figured out!!
     
  14. Oh yeah, thanks GT:)

    I've been really distracted the past few days. I had my micro test this morning and am doing much better now. Thanks for your support and I hope you don't have to take the OAT!! Congratulations---you rock.
