    What are the chances, that a sister school, after your interview checks with it's other schools to make sure they have not previously interviewed you and decided to accept you?
    If so, they decline you acceptance because they don't wish to "compete" with themselves?
    I could see a school calling another affiliated school to see if they are going to take you and then sending out a thanks anyway letter.
    What do you all think?

    Well I wouldn't think this is possible, but after my acceptance to MWU-AZCOM, I recieved a rejection from MWU-CCOM.

    I had high enough stats to get into CCOM, and was accepted to every other school I applied to.

    Conversely, I've been accepted to both LECOM's....

    However, I'm waiting to see if CCOM accepts me - and I've already been accepted at AZCOM, so we'll see....

    The Touros said they "occasionally communicate" about who has been accepted, whatever that means.

    I hear the UMDNJs talk.. felt that way also when I interviewed. I think this is common with "sister schools".
