"The Admissions Committee has reviewed your file and a decision has not yet been made regarding an interview. The Admissions Committee will meet to review your application every 90 days; you will be notified if there is a change in their decision at that time."

Does this mean that my file will not be reviewed for another 3 months... ? that's kind of ridiculous

Basically this is a waitlist for interview like MWU-AZ letter. not a flat out rejection.

i noticed in an earlier post you mentioned you are not from the U.S. Are you a U.S citizen or permanent resident though? LECOM's website says the following "The LECOM School of Dental Medicine only accepts applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents." so maybe thats something they are trying to figure out with your application possibly?
I am a US permanent resident. Yah I checked to make sure they accept permanent residents... I'm just confused because my stats are good, but waiting 90 days...

dang thats weird. i got the re-review thing also but its bc of my low undergrad gpa but your stats seem really good. maybe they just filled up all their pre-dec interviews already or something
did you call them about that or you just assumed it was due to your low gpa? I was thinking about calling them tomorrow and ask, but I don't if that's a good idea

I'm actually a 3rd time applicant to LECOM so I've spoke back and forth with the dean over email and was told specifically that bc of my low undergrad gpa I'm on hold for now and will be re-reviewed later. it was kind of an unofficial "re-review" because i didn't get the re-review email and my portal doesn't say re-review
ohh ok thanks!

Was this email after a "we've processed your supplemental application" email?

It's not just about the stats--there is something else in your application, or maybe missing from your application that didn't say "hey, we want to see this guy"...maybe your stats are too good for them and they think they are your "safety school" or whatever. The waiting 90 days is just how they do it. They know other people are still getting their applications in and they want to see what else they get, how many people accept their interview invites, maybe see how many people put deposits down after Dec 1st. Who knows, but at least its not a flat out thanks but no thanks from them.
