    Hi folks,
    I got a phone call this morning to interview with Dr Weimer and i was on the phone for approximately 26 minutes but he talked half of the time, i thought the interview went well and i just wanted to know how soon they let you know if you're accepted, i read some where that they don't call people any more to let them know.

    Please let me know how soon they're supposed to contact you cos i really can't stand this waiting game.

    bamboo511,

    I interviewed today also so let me know when you hear anything! I hope we both hear some good news soon. :) I wonder how many interviews Dr. Weimar conducts a day...

    I hope we both get some good news, how awesome will that be, when the lady called me this morning she only gave me two time options for today or next week so i picked today to interview even though i had little time to prepare.

    I got a call about 8 days after I interviewed. The nice thing was that it was from a call from Dr. Levin (the dean of LECOM-Bradenton) congratulating me.

    i sumbitted my pharmcas in oct and supp in jan. From reading all of the posts, it seems like getting an interview from Bradenton is a really good sign. Everyone who has interveiwed seemed to have gotten in.

    it was not stressful at all, i was in my PJs when i did the interview, it was over the phone, it was just the usual question, tell me about yourself, why pharmacy, why lecom, strenght/weaknessess.

    I turned in my supp. in late January and I had my interview with Dr. Weimar on Feb. 8. It was not stressful, it was like a normal conversation and he asked me the usual..tell me about urself...why pharmacy, etc. I received the acceptance call from Dr. Levin last Wednesday so I'm looking forward to attending LECOM-Bradenton.

    hmmm, so u got a phone call about 2 weeks later, i was reading in some of the earlier posts that they stopped calling people since january cos of privacy issues, now i'm confused. well it doesn't matter how they contact me as long as they do with good news, lol.

    ya I thought that they stopped calling too...the funny thing is I called the Erie campus (they are the ones that make the decision) 30 min. before Dr. Levin called me and they told me that they no longer make the phone calls and I have to wait for the mail for my response. So I was shocked but yet relieved when I got the call. My twin bro interviewed on the same day as me but he hasn't heard anything yet. Hopefully he gets in with me as well.

    I'm going to the March 19th tour. The 12th is all booked. I believe the max # for the tour is only 10 people. Anyone going the 19th? As of last Friday, I'm the only one going to the 19th tour:( .

    i asked about bringing a guest with me to the tour, but i was told that i couldnt because they didnt have the funds to allow people other than those who have been accepted to attend the tour. i dont understand :confused: .

    I don't understand either. Why the max of only 10 people? Heather told me it was because of staffing.....:confused: ? I mean, it's not like they're going to treat us to an eight course meal at a 5 star restuarant. I bet you a dollar all she's going to do is walk, talk, and point.

    Bamboo, if you want to bring your parents then I say bring 'em, no matter what they tell you.

    I'm going to come with my dad, there is no way i'm driving to bradenton by myself. i'll call them tomorrow and hopefully i'll be at the march 19th tour.

    I would like to get the tour as well and have my husband come with me. I wonder what makes the tour so special that you can't have other people with you?! What's the number to call btw? I couldn't find a FL number on the website. Do we call Erie and schedule it through there? Thanks everyone. :)

    Thanks bamboo.

    Just out of curiosity, where is everybody from? I'll start, I'm in St. Pete (probably only an hour or so from Bradenton).

    My stats should be enough to give anyone hope...lol

    GPA: 3.3 overall
    PCAT: 33 (I know, it's really bad)
    Experience: 2+ years in retail, mail-order, and long-term care pharmacies

    When the dean called, he mentioned that he was very impressed with my community involvement (volunteering at a nursing home). Hope this helps!! :)

    Lisa....your PCAT???..shreeek. But who cares, you're in right:) ! I'll see you the 19th!

    My stats: GPA 3.5/ PCAT 90

    The average GPA for those accepted so far is 3.5.
    As a general rule, the farther you are away from a 3.0, the better your chances are. Don't be discouraged if you're below the average, remember what an average is!!!
