I decided to apply to the Bradenton campus. The deadline isn't until March 1. I plan to over-night my supplemental on Monday and I have already added it on PharmCAS, which cost $40 more. I've interviewed at Nova, but haven't heard anything yet. I haven't heard from the other 3 schools, so I started getting worried and decided to add 1 more school. Does anyone think I still have a shot at Bradenton?? Does anyone know how many people have been accepted out of the 78??? That seems like a lot of spots, considering I interviewed at Nova for 1 of 50 spots (at West Palm). South only accepts around 70.

I just got mine in just a couple of wks. but when I call them to ask them qtns in regard to how many spots left, they give me the impression that there's alot so I dont know. But if you have a very good GPA and experience you would have a good chance. Know someone that got accepted with a GPA of 3.2 but with strong pharmacy experience + an anticipated degree in Biology. so how is your GPA and stuff?

My GPA isn't to good b/c of 1 semester in 99 when I was general studies. I worked for a few years and then decided to go back to school for pharmacy. Since then, all A's and B's, but 1 semester of poor grades is very hard to bring up....in other words it's 3.0. I have really good LOR's and I am a pharm tech. I also made an 85 on the PCAT. What about you??

Apply quickly, I think you still have a chance... get that application in quick though...if you wait until the deadline I dont think you will have much of a chance with sub-par stats. My advice is to get it in within the next couple days. If you wait until the deadline I would say dont bother just because you said your grades arenet top notch.

Do you think there are still chances of me getting in if i apply within 2-3 days????? is the pharmacy experience required????? is the PCAT required?????

Go for it if you have everything in to PharmCAS, this is their inaugural class, they are trying to attract attention and fill those seats. I heard when LECOM Erie opened their doors, they were accepting applicants that were pulling D's in science courses. Of course, that has all changed.

LECOM is a private school, which does not favor in-state applicants (for the state $$$/funding). Electronic LORs are recommended (quicker, less paperwork) over paper version, just need to find at least 2 people to submit the LOR to PharmCAS with Godspeed.

I got into Lecom. I actually drove down to Bradenton to look at it. It is located in new developed area so you better got some $$$ to live there!! From what I know there are no apartments around there you gotta drive like 20 or 30 min to get apartment.

I couldnt get a letter from a science professor because i had graduated over two years ago. I got an email from Pamela once I had submitted my application that I was missig this LOR, so I emailed back explaining my problem. All I had to do was submit a written request to have the science professor letter waived and include who I would like to have considered as a letter instead.

I am not 100 percent positive, but I think I remember Dean Levin stating that the Lecom Bradenton campus is not currently accepting international students. Call though!

No one here knows if you will get in. You're not a failure unless you think you are.

Hi,

I just submitted my online supplemental application to both LECOM-B AND LECOM Erie. I submitted all my LORs, transcripts, and test scores to Pharmcas. Do I need to mail these again directly to LECOM/

Thank you very much,

Smallkitty00
