    Got my rejection last week. I guess I would have withdrawn had I gotten in. I would rather go to my state school, than pay $30k/yr to have religion instilled in my education.

    It was pre-interview, complete since end of September, (10V, 11P, 11B, P WS), 3.61 gpa, no church affiliation whatsoever (my friends like to call me Satan), etc. Good luck dude, hope you get this one! :)

    Yo Freak, I can't beleive that you got rejected from Loma Linda! You have good MCAT scores and a great GPA. What other schools have you gotten into? I was thinking of Loma Linda was not so hard to get into, but from looking at your story, it seems harder than I thought to get in.

    Actually nb81, Loma Linda is actually fairly competitive to get into, especially if you are not Seventh-Day. I would say that your GPA should be at least 3.6 and mcat in mid 30's if not SDA. Anyways, Dr. Don is it really true that the class is full? I really wanted to go there and this is very upsetting to know cause I only just interviewed there and really don't want to be put on another waitlist! Where did you get your info? :confused:

I hate God for the most part and it showed through in my rampant use of drugs and alcohol while completing my LLUSOM secondary application. Seriously though, they like people who demostrate Christian principles and thus rejected me. I also put that I used drugs and alcohol recently (Honesty is not the best policy). Why they waited so long to reject me, I have no idea.
    In the grand scheme of things, my numbers aren't that better than any other applicant. I have interviewed at SLU, MCP, NY Med, Tulane, Temple, and Univ of Nevada. Waitlisted at Temple, accepted at Nevada, no word from any of the others (decisions should come within 2 weeks at this point). Good luck y'all.

    Is it too late to convert to as 7th Day Adventist? I heard that they are vegetarians, so that will kick my ass. I NEED PROTEIN!
