    not yet. but they told me that just because you interview pre-dec does not mean that they accept or reject you on Dec 1st. I know someone that interviewed with LLU in October and did not get accepted until early february.

    so not hearing does not mean accepted or rejected

    I havent heard anything either. I just called LLU and they said they would be posting it on AADSAS today and sending out a letter! AADSAS may not have gotten to the LLU acceptances yet! Hopefully soon though! Good luck everyone! :)

    I just checked my AADSAS and it said "Offer Made"... I'm assuming this means I got accepted???

    looks like you are one of the first. congrats

    to everyone else, remember LLU does not accept/reject always on dec 1, even if you interview pre-dec

    and they told me they are still in the process.

    That is to say, it's not determined yet.

    However, it sounds like they will decide it soon.

    AADSAS--->Snail Mail

    That's their way to inform us.

    Let's wait a few more days. :luck:

    the first rounds of acceptances are not done yet.

    However, AADSAS status should be changed prior to being accepted to LLU.

    Ok, I think the first rounds of acceptance will be completed at the end of this week.

    Let's wait a bit more!!:luck:

    I just checked mine and it says "offer made" too!!! I interviewed on November 18th, so that was a much faster turn-around than I expected from them (I thought they said it'd probably take a while to hear).


    I'd encourage everyone else to check their aadsas out if they haven't; I had no idea it'd be there until the guy above said his was updated.


    PS-I'm not SDA, if that helps..

    They will finish by April, so that's still 4 months to fill a class of 100.
    The way they decide on acceptances is with the adcom getting together, and the applicant's complete file is projected in front of everyone. They will discuss on each applicant and decide. Once they vote and a decision is reached, a notice will go out immediately the following day to the applicant.

    Total interviews last year was about 400.

    April!?! I thought waiting until the end of the week was torture!!! I can't even imagine waiting until April!!!! I might have to stop checking AADSAS, cold turkey, and just wait for the letter....I can't keep obsessively checking until APRIL!!!

    Good luck everyone :):xf:

    What about if I interviewed December 1st? Do you think I would have to wait 'till April to get a decision, or do I have an equal chance to find out by the end of the year?

    I interviewd december 2nd, and my interviewer basically told me he doesn't know when I'll get a respond. Basically between now and April. So I didn't pressure on asking for a more definitive time frame.

    My tour guide, a D3 student, said he interviewed around this time, either in Nov/Dec (he couldn't remember), and got accepted in January.

    One thing I forgot to ask is whether adcom will review the applications based on when the interviews were done (first come first serve) or they just pick from a pile of interviewed applications. Maybe someone could answer that.

    Ya, I think thats pretty much what I wanted to know. If they just do it in order of interview date, I might as well stop stressing for a couple of months. Maybe someone can answer this. What is the LATEST someone interviewed but has been accepted? I know I saw Oct. 15 somewhere in this thread...

    I was there today for my interview and they told me they did send out a few letters, but only a few. I think they still have lots of interviews lined up.

    D1 at LLU here. Interviewed early Dec. Waitlisted around late Feb. Got accepted in JUNE. Some of you, BE PREPARED TO WAIT. Think about other things, like what you are going to do the moment you find out you got in. Or, if you are wise (like I was), start making plans for reapplying in June. You don't want to be stuck without a plan for next year. Needless to say it was a long spring for me, but a spectacular summer.

    Haha...well...I mean, it's not THAT bad, right? I lived in east Redlands until I was 12, which is actually a pretty nice area considering it's 909. But overall, I'd have to agree with ya :p

    I mean a 12 year old can manage to stay pretty occupied with even the very very limited cultural/entertainment opportunities in the IE, not sure about now after having lived in Seattle and Tokyo over the past 9 years though...haha.

    What's Riverside up to these days? I don't think I've been back there since I moved.

    Well thats good to hear.
    I haven't really gotten any feedback.. So I just have to wait and see.
    I think they they are waiting for my last semester grades to make a decision.


    Your picture looks familiar..
    Did you do Careers in dentistry this summer?

    Mine is like that too. It's been like that for a little while now. From what I've gathered, it means that your application is ready to be reviewed...but someone tell me if I'm wrong! Just means that your app. is waiting for a final decision basically.
    Another LLU student said his status was like that for awhile before he was accepted--but I don't think that "application complete" necessarily means an acceptance.

    Haha that thing was so hard...
    It was my first time i have ever tried to make anything with wax
    and my contacts were all dry from the long day.

    Somehow I managed to get a 20 not perfect like you guys..

    but i can't complain.


    Hopefully we all make it. :xf:
