Had my interview there 9/19...

The group interview was about 15 minutes with barely any speaking time between the four other students in the room. In my individual interview they asked me ONE (and I mean only one) question. I was given less than five minutes. Needless to say I'm not sure anyone can sufficiently get to know a candidate in such a short amount of time... decent stats or not I'm fairly certain I'll be waitlisted.

They conduct interviews every tuesday so I'm sure you'll be hearing back soon.

Hi, I also attended the 09/19/17 interview. My status in the portal has changed; stating a decision have been made, and that I will receive the decision letter via within 10 days. I have also received a link requesting me to do a background check. I am running out of patience. I want to attend this school so bad.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to everyone...

UPDATE: I got in. I was notified by the AACP that I was required to take a drug test the Thursday after my interview (LECOM holds interviews every Tuesday). I did not get my letter until two days later on Saturday.

If you have yet to receive your letter and have not heard anything about a drug test I hate to say it's likely that you were either waitlisted or did not get in...

If you got the background check email that means you were accepted! Also based on your username I'm fairly certain we were in the group interview together. Congrats!

Hi RNPharmD, when did you receive your request for background check? I believe that you got accepted as all the schools only send out that request once you are accepted.

I just received the request for an interview on 10/24 Tuesday.
@chemistrytrash: Do you mind if I ask u what did they ask u in the interview?
They asked everyone a different question in their individual interview so I wouldn't be much help. I think what they are looking for is the ability to think on your feet and give a reasonable answer. I was interviewed by two very kind professors but from what I heard all of the interviewers were very nice.

Confirmed: I was the first to be admitted to the class of 2021. I'm so excited. This school, the staff, and the faculty are beyond amazing. I know this is going to be the most challenging but best three years of my life.

I think we did the interview together and we will be in class together

Had my interview there 9/19...

I was given less than five minutes.

Does anyone still have an upcoming interview? I have one scheduled for the Erie campus on 1/9/18, but I'm worried if the interview will be postponed if it continues to experience heavy snowfall.

Also, out of curiosity, what were the reasons you chose LECOM?
