Feb 16. I'm pretty pumped. It got to a point where I thought I'd never hear from them.
Has anyone figured out why CCOM is so slow? I've read multiple threads about this exact same topic. I've already had interviews and been accepted at other schools but haven't heard anything back from CCOM though my app has been complete for months. I virtually certain I wouldn't have been screened out due to my stats. I would really like to go down and check out the campus. What the hell is going on down there?
Your post gives me some hope cbenedic. I actually just got an email back from CCOM telling me that they have everything but are just waiting to review it. I heard back from alot of other schools much sooner. Does CCOM get alot more applicants than DMU or KCOM? Or do they just go over verything with a fine tooth comb?
I am 99% sure about coming to CCOM this fall. Sent in matriculation....
does anyone know if CCOM has scribe service/mp3 lecture recordings/powerpoints/notes for students to review lectures?
I just interviewed on Feb 16 and they told us the adcom wouldn't be meeting for three weeks. Maybe it's just because we missed this one that you all are talking about, I don't know.
wow really? i interviewed 2/1 and they said 3 weeks back then! hmmm...when i called the office they said the adcom is meeting towards the end of this upcoming week...i would think that you would be included in this group as well. how did your interview go DocOB?
Best interview I have had so far. We were laughing and joking a lot of the time. Very relaxed. When I was given the ethical question of what I might do to fix the problem with uninsured people and what not, I busted out some Chapelle, which was risky I know, but it paid off. "I'd just give everybody a fake ID to Canada." They laughed so hard that I never even had to answer the question for real, we just kind of moved on to other things. All in all it was a good day, and based on my interview I feel good about my chances. Oh yeah, did I mention I loved the school. It was great.
My only guess is that maybe they are meeting this week, but just won't get to our files, so we'll be in the next batch. That's ok though, I've waited this long.
I'm interviewing on March 6th. CCOM was originally my top choice, but now I'm having some second thoughts. First off their tution is about $10,000 more a year then any other school I'm interviewing at. Second, I've been to some schools with non-traditional curriculums and the traditional 8hrs of lecture a day at CCOM is starting to sound less appealing. When do they have time to study? Who knows maybe I'll like it better once I visit.
Does anyone know anything about proving residency for tuition. I grew up in Chicago, but went to college in Missouri and have been living there for 1.5 years post-graduation. So I'm not sure that I can considered for in-state tuition anymore. I knew someone who was in the same situation last year while applying to allopathic schools and they wouldn't let her pay in-state for Illinois. If anyone knows anything about this, I'd appreciate your thoughts. I e-mailed the school about it, but they bounced my e-mail to someone who never responded.
Have you interviewed yet? At the interview, you fill out a residency form, and at that time you'll be able to indicate that. If you wanted to find out right away, I would try calling the financial aid office. They will likely know all of the residency rules.
Someone told me that we would get a copy from our Big Brother/Sister????
Between you and me, Harvey, I think I'm happier at where I ended up anyways, and I would imagine you are also.I have to agree with you, and it has kinda changed my view of the school. I have been complete for over 3 months and keep getting the same end around that my app is under review and that they will let me know when they have come to a decision. How long does it take them to decide if they want to interview me? They should be able to tell the first time they look at my app. The other 5 schools that offered me interviews let me know within 2-3 weeks of my file being complete.

Seems like they are a decade behind some of the more progressive programs which see a need to change the way medicine is taught in the 21st century.

Congrats and welcome to the c/o 2011!!
