    i interviewed at PCOM recently and am waiting for a decision. i was just wondering if anyone has been rejected post-interview. i would think that they accept most of the students they interview at this time of year. thanks.

    I applied to PCOM about 2.5 weeks ago and called today to check my file. They say it's complete. Waiting on an interview myself, though their communication is spotty...

    I am not convinced that this is completely the case. Dont most DO schools hold interviews into April, some even in May? The secondary application deadline for the majority of schools isnt until after the new year. Unfortunately, interview does not equal acceptance.

    The adcome meets only once a month, so decisions/rejections get sent at the same time. Also, PCOM starts their interview season later than most and goes pretty much till april

    well i don't think all people interviewed are accepted. but everyone says you have a better chance of getting accepted if you interview earlier, so i think they accept a higher percentage of those interviewed now than they would in april.

    I just interviewed on monday (11/14) at main campus. they said that the interviewers had to recommend interviewees for acceptance at the larger admissions commitee meeting later in the month. she said it would probably take place before thanksgiving, as they only meet once a month. we should know within the next few weeks. We (the interviewees) were told by a student that we had pretty good chances since we were interviewing before thanksgiving... although, i'm not completely relying on that information...

    Yes, it is spotty

    Although I am having the same experience at all 3 DO schools I applied to. They say being complete a month is not too long if you have not heard anything :confused:

    This is good news indeed, as I interviewed at the GA campus Tuesday. I asked and she said interviews just started in mid-October, before my new MCAT was received.

    I have good feelings about this one. :D

    Yeah, and I wonder if the committee decides both who to accept and who to grant interviews to in the same meeting. Anyone PCOM people know when they meet?

    I am really OCD about PCOM and was just curious if you could look back and see the day and time of day when you received the interview invite email from PCOM?

    Every time my email sound goes off I get excited;-)

    Thanks!

    Well then my guess is that the adcom probably meets on Fridays, and sends out the emails on the following Monday after lunch.

    Hopefully I will hear something on Monday!

    Thanks again and congratulations again on acceptance!

    ME TOO! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY GOT BACK TO US SO EARLY! Interview monday, 11/14, ACCEPTANCE by 11/18! The date of the letter says wed. the 16th, so the commitee must have met sooner than we thought! I'm ecstatic!

    Did all the people who interviewed on monday already get back letters? Do they send out acceptances before they send out rejections, or do all the letters go out at the same time? I was under the impression that they meet once and then send out all the letters, rejection or acceptance, at the same time. Is this true? Anyone who didn't interview on this past monday hear anything back?
    I'm kind of annoyed now...i've been waiting for 4 weeks, and i live 15 minutes away from the GA campus....if they send out all the letters at once I should have gotten one by now...sigh, oh well..maybe there'll be something in the mail tomorrow..

    congrats gwillie. which one were you at the interview? and are you going to pcom?

    also, i dont think this applies to the GA campus. and if you didn't get a letter today it could come tomorrow because it was postmarked the 17th.

    The way they explained it to us at the interview was that they meet once in the middle of the month to make the decisions and then send something out. So I would hope this applies to GA PCOM since it was what they said.
    and yeah, we'll all probably get something tomorrow or monday.
    Congrats to you both, btw!! atlanta's awesome :)

    Thank you. I haven't seen it yet because it went to my parents house and my mom opened it, but she said it was thick and that's how she knew it was an acceptance. Also, another came with it. Some sort of invitation.

    Regular sized envelope, but quite thick. I interviewed the same day as you, so stop reading this and go check your mail. :)

    I got a thin one. The committee on admissions decided to delay a decision on my application for admission.

    I didn't get anything. WVSOM did this to me. More annoying than a rejection in my opinion.

    WVSOM has yet to make a decision, placing me into the, "decision deferred" pile. I know what it literally means, but have yet to get an answer to what it *really* means. It isn't numbers, because all of mine are well above the school's average.

    I'm glad I wasn't accepted right away, because I like PCOM-GA a whole lot more.

    My second MCAT was a 31, 11P 10V 10B. My first was 27, 9P 9V 9B. My sci GPA is a 2.9 and my cum GPA ia 2.8 with a post bac of GPA 3.57. My undergraduate major was an engineering major.

    I think it means that when the admissions committee meets in December, they will look over my application along with those of the new candidates who have interviewed since the last admission committee meeting, and will continue to review until they will determine the final disposition of my application.

    I'm not in but I'm not out either...having been in the military I am used to the hurry up and wait routine.

    Yeah, the official letter was thin, and since it came so fast i was completely convinced it was a rejection letter. Then I saw a smaller envelope with PCOM's staple on the header, which puzzled me a little. I went through the roof when i saw the words "admitted student luncheon." By the way, this is for the philly campus.

    Stats: 25N, 3.43 cum, 3.3 sci, 4 years of tech work in ER + well rounded background.

    I also have a question for all others who were interviewed. Did anyone else get asked about the other schools you applied to and if you had any other interviews yet? After they asked me this, they wrote down every school i applied to and put check marks next to the ones i have interviews at. Talk about being put on the hot seat. Guess it doesn't matter now! :thumbup:

    they just want to know who their competition is. When i told them, they actually asked me to wait for their decision before accepting the other schools I interviewed at. Generally, it is a good sign when they ask it at PCOM.

    When did all of you who have been accepted finish all of your application stuff. both primary and secondary. I feel as though I have waited a very long time since I turned in my secondary and have not even been invited for an interview. I already have acceptances at two other schools and would really like to hear from PCOM. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.
