    how long did it LECOM to send you a response/secondary once your application was submitted to them?

    Im still waiting to hear from PCSOM, LECOM, TUCOM, EVVCOM.

    my applications were all submitted on the 1st of november.

    dangerous question to ask and even more dangerous to try and answer...

    if you notice the little smiley dude I have throwing a computer into a wall, you'll also see that I'm referring to waiting to hear from many other schools having completed all secondaries by then end of august. I, myself have found the following advice most useful:

    1.) don't hold your breath at anytime during this process (except maybe that short .0001ms between receiving a letter from a school in the mail and ripping it open at mach 9)...

    2.) get a hobby (for me its twiddling my thumbs)...

    I'm THE least patient person around here, I swear I am. I must have posted 1,000,000 times asking that question. Come to think of it I'm surprised I haven't been ousted for harassment :p

    you'll probably (and don't hold me to this) hear from LECOM first, then the rest will trickle in, slowly, and painfully...

    just remember, you've worked years and years to get to this pt, whats another few months of pain and torture?

    HEY I INTERVIEWED 10/11 too!! who are you!?!

    I interviewed on the 17 of Oct, Just a week after Homer. Ach Gott!! I hate waiting. Ever since I i found out I've been put on the qualified list at UHS and KCOM(they call it something else but same principle) I've been dying to hear back from LECOM or any school for that matter. I feel as if I can get into just one school every thing will be ok. Just ONE SCHOOL!! Now is that too much to ask? Oh yeah I have an interview to Des Moins, any body been there yet?

    I'm curious to know if anyone else has heard from LECOM who were October interviewees. I interviewed on 10/24. Do you think I should hear by now or is it still too early to expect a response? :confused:

    I interviewed at LECOM on Oct. 18 and I just found out that I got in this past weekend. The interview was very straightforward.

    I was waiting for someone to ask - I GOT IN!!! WOOHOO!

    I got a rejection from CWRU, and two thicker-than-a-one-page-rejection-letter envelopes from LECOM and COMP.

    I was visibly sweating while I opened them.

    WHAT A FRIGGIN RELIEF!

    It's a thick envelope in case anyone wants to know.

    I already decided I'm going to OUCOM though!

    aww man, UNE was bad bad bad...

    I MUST have been one of those "exception" applications with stats not quite up to their standards that they bring in just to beat on for fun because that's what my interview was, a swift and thorough beating...

    my thoughts:

    -UNECOM is an exceptional school, run extremely well, students are happy and level-headed and just an overall great schooling experience...

    -I'm not used to Maine. Biddeford/Saco were not impressive, the area was desolate. I drove to Portland with the hopes of finding some of the amenities I'm used to, but there was nothing but brick buildings and lobster restaurants as far as the eye could see...

    all in all, none of it matters that had to be the worst interview of all time. The entire day we were told the interviews are extremely relaxed and as I watched people come out this was confirmed. I was last to be interviewed for the day and should've been weary of that fact.

    it would truly be a miracle for me to get into there after that...

    Time to lick these wounds and move on I guess...

    Buck up, little cowboy! You're in already someplace else. Besides ... you never know. The two places I had the worst interviews (I felt, anyway) I was waitlisted. Not an acceptance, but better than a outright rejection.

    Good luck!

    Tough luck Homer, but on the other hand when you get a letter from UNECOM, you can return to sender with a note telling them to roll up their letter and shove it vilontly up their anal oraface. :)
    If nothing else you might make you feel better for sticking it to a Med School for a change.
