    Did anyone who paid the 1500 dollar deposit receive a confirmation email of any sort?

    Yes it was received the day after payment was made. It will also show as completed on the admissions portal.

    How often is the adcom going to meet at this point? I think obviously there have been seats many seats dropped as of Saturday. Should I be checking my online portal status every 15 minutes or every other day?

    I doubt that it would be more than once every 2 weeks. I would bet that the waiting list is already completed at ranked.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the wait list here was unranked. It seems to me that a lot of schools say their wait list is unranked, but I'm not positive what that means. I interviewed at another school that told us their wait list was ranked by MCAT and GPA, but then later said it was unranked. :shrug:

    From PCOMs website:
    "All accepted candidates are also required to remit a $1,500 non-refundable deposit by April 15."

    And from threads from previous years

    Waitlist movement may have started. I just looked and had the $1750 DO deposit come up in the "REQUIREMENTS" section of my portal...does that mean I'm in?!?!

    Interviewed 3/10 and was waitlisted on 3/22

    Same, interviewed 3/10, waitlisted 3/22, deposit showed up on my portal today. Will probably be declining, but I need to think about it a bit.

    Hey guys! My portal still looks the same however there is a "1750 DO Deposit Paid" section in my requirements now. Does that mean I have been accepted off the waitlist? If so what is the next step, because there is no link on my portal to pay the deposit? Thanks for the help.

    Honestly if you don't have any other acceptances I would just pay it now! Congrats again friend! :)

    I'll have to wait and see then because there is no bull point like that in my portal, just 1750 deposit section in requirements. I hope it's not a glitch and I am actually accepted.

    Do y'all think it's a good idea to call admissions tommorow and check what that DO deposit tab is or should I just wait?

    Will they be sending updates only at the end of these deadlines? I'm assuming if someone is offered a spot and neglected to pull themselves off the waitlist and they notify PCOM at that point then they could potentially extend the offer to the next person on the waitlist before said deadline. I'm just trying to figure out whether or not I should stop neurotically checking my portal.

    Class of 2021,

    First of congrats to those who were accepted and good luck to those on the waiting list. I have some books that I am looking to sell. These books were helpful to get through the basic sciences grind.

    I have Netters Human atlas 5th edition, Rohen Color atlas 7th edition, BRS gross anatomy 7th edition, BRS micro/immuno 5th edition and BRS physio 6th edition.

    Also if anyone is looking for an apartment complex near PCOM I would look into Highlands at Sugarloaf. I have been living here for 2 years and have had no problems. Also we could split the $500.00 referral fee!!

    If anyone is interested please PM me.
