We are so close!! I really like LMU and was wondering if my low GPA makes it unlikely to get in? I had major health issues my junior year so I have a 3.03 although without that year I'd have closer to a 3.4 or 3.5. My GRE scores are good too- 310 total. I have a lot of experience, but I'm concerned because of my low GPA. I'm submitting my app tomorrow. Any idea when we will hear back about interviews? :)

LMU (at least last year) let people know about interviews a few weeks before their date. And they didn't have one set date where they offered everyone interviews, they sent emails starting in October and all the way through January or February for interviews. I got an email October 12th for a November 9th interview last year (which I had to reschedule because of two unrescheduleable exams that same day)

Hey guys I am currently a third year at LMU (and I love it!) , so if you have any questions feel free to ask!
Also if it helps on our schedule they actually have a few days marked off as perspective interview days, the first being October 23 :)

Good luck to you all!

What's the deal with asking if we're from an appalachian region? I just learned from this process that I technically am. Does LMU favor this in any way? I guess I'm just kind of confused

My guess is it's probably for scholarship purposes and not admissions purposes.

I'm probably being that crazy person, but looking through all of the previous years threads, it looks like by this point they were sending out interview invites last year... Anyone know if anyone has heard back yet?

I don't think anyone last year got an invite until a couple weeks after he cycle closed. Not sure if that's how it'll go this year again or not, but you could always email and ask.

Reading this thread brings me back and gives me the same thrill of getting my interview invites. :) Good luck, everyone! You'll probably see me around once in a while, but as some of the regulars around here know, I like to disappear for like... a month at a time.

LMU is gorgeous, and if you like.... very.... very rural.... areas, you'll love it there! It was also like 60 degrees there in January when I went, and that was a super nice surprise as someone coming from north Illinois.

Not sure how helpful comparison to my stuff will be because I have a slightly non-traditional background, having worked as a vet tech for several years and not going into this straight out of a biology undergrad, and having 7000+ hours of veterinary experience..
VMCAS calculated my overall science as 3.63

This is just copied from my post in 'What are my chances':

Prior Degrees: A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology [graduated 2011 & got my LVT license]
A.A.S. in Nursing [graduated 2014 & got my RN license]
Currently working on: Bachelors in Biology
Overall GPA:
-- from vet tech degree: graduated cum laude w/ 3.5
-- from nursing degree: graduated with program honors and cum laude w/ 3.76
-- Current Cum GPA at present school for my Bachelors: 3.94
-- last 45 credits: 3.72

GRE: 155V/154Q/4.0AW


-- Goodluck!! Hopefully you will get good news soon!

Last year, it largely seemed that they were sending interviews based on what they consider strong applicants first, as well as based on submission date. They very well could have changed it this time around, but there were some people in my interview group that submitted WAY early, and were in the last interview group with me (I submitted in late August and also had a relatively low cumulative GPA compared to many people- a 3.3 or something).

Middlesboro-Holiday Inn Express, Sleep Inn, Days Inn

Cumberland Gap-Cumberland Inn (not a chain, but nice! I stayed there when my landlord didn't have my house finished when I was moving between 1st and 2nd year)

Tazewell/New Tazewell also has a couple of motels/hotels, but they're farther.

first year here. i know how awful this process can make one feel. i was in your shoes this time last year. if you have questions or whatever, hit me up via pm. it's not like you can literally will yourself into medical school, but my advice is pretend like you can. then give yourself a break. and see what happens.

I'm a first year at Oregon St CVM, but I was accepted to LMU CVM last cycle. Good luck to everyone with interviews and those of you waiting to hear! LMU was my most positive interview experience. The faculty and students will really do their best to make you feel comfortable the day of interviews. Don't stress! Just review your experiences, practice some interview questions, dress professionally, and go in with a smile and some confidence. You all will do great! :D
