    Quick question, was anyone wait listed for
    LECOM? What are the chances of getting in?
    I haven't heard from them yet, is it a lost cause?

    Call and ask for updates. As far as I know, the class has been full for a while with little movement. Good luck though.

    Thanks rowerman. Should I send some kind of letter to them to show that I'm still very interested?

    I was also wait-listed at LECOM and called a week or so ago. They told me that the class is full - and has been for some time (as rowerman said). If they have people give up their seats - then they will go back and take people off the alternate list. I am doubting that many people will be taken off the list at this point - but you never know! You could be the first one they call!! As for me - I am going to DMU! Best of Luck

    Keep trying! Never give up hope. You've been wait-listed which means you're qualified, just that space is tight. Let them know how much you want in, write a letter. Good luck.

    Once again thanks! Do you think its a good idea to have both professional and personal letters of reference sent at this point in time?

    i am a PBL student at LECOM and i know that right now the admissions office is trying to figure out who they are inviting from the wait list. It is true that they can call you anytime up until the 2nd week of august, so if you really want to come just keep bugging them and be ready for anything. Any other questions, just give me an email.

    Thanks for all the replies....I still haven't heard anything but is there any chance this late in the game? Someone mentioned that there are only 50 spots on the list. Does anyone know how many have filled up since June?

    There should be a spot opening immediately in the lecture-based pathway. Good luck.
