For those who applied to GA-PCOM:

Our Dean just mentioned today that they plan on sending out the first batch of acceptance letters in about 1 week.

Oooh, I can feel the tension...

Feel free to PM me or other GA-PCOMers with questions you may have about the school/town etc (current students include "Drugtech", "BMW19", "BringintheReign", "samdwi", "coalesced" - off the top of my head).

Thanks for the heads up. I interviewed there oct 17 and was wondering when I might hear back. They had said they planned on mailing them out the second week of Nov. so I was wondering if they were a bit behind schedule or if that meant I was getting the skinny envelope : >)

Dang it Samdwi,

I wanted to be the good samaritan and tell them about it. Add me to the list of current Ga-PCOMers that can be contacted with any questions.

I think the delay in acceptances is stemming from the fact that number of applications has increased almost 50% from last year.

good luck to all.

Sure.

For our class, they let us know within 48 hours of our interview. Most of us would return home from the interview and an email/letter would be waiting for us - so we thought it would be the same this year. But I can see how having more than 2100 applications AND a first-year class this year would slow things down.

TO FELLOW GA-PCOMers: On another note, what shape was the kidney again? pea?, zucchini?, lentil? asparagus?

Hey, it could have been worse. He could have asked if the kidney was kidney shaped ;)

That's odd. Anyway, I don't think it will be much longer, as people have started to pay deposits etc at other schools, and GA-PCOM wouldn't want to lose out on the cream-of-the-crop applicants.

Regular business length envelopes. It had a few pages so a little thicker than normal but not explosively thick. Good luck! :luck:

Hey JKDMed... When did you interview? I can try to check and see if our ADCOM met on all of the interviews at once or if it ended up being broken down into sections. Get back with me and I'll let you know what I can find out for you, ok? :)
