    Waitlisted this morning about an hour ago, interviewed 3/23. 3.35 ogpa, 3.3 sgpa, 20 AA/ 20 PAT. Strong extracurriculars/ community service. I felt my interview was definitely not the strongest

    Does anyone know if LECOM has any specialists as their clinical instructors to teach D3s and D4s at the clinics? or are they all general dentists? Thanks!

    During my interview both of my interviewers were specialists, and I know you get a class designated to each specialty during your 4 years there. As far as their attendance at the clinics, I am sure they are there, but you should reach out to the faculty or current students for a more clear response.

    If my status is decided and they are sending a letter but I haven't gotten a call or email-- is that normal or should I assume I am not accepted?

    Hi guys, admissions called me today. I was on the alternate list and I think they were about to offer me a spot, but I have decided on another school. Hope one of y'all gets a the spot. Don't give up guys, I was on three waitlists and ended getting in somewhere :)
