yea I was shocked! VCOM NEVER closes! This is the first time they closed the school down since I started. It was fun playing outside in the snow haha
Any of you current students know of a really good health and life insurance policy to get for an individual?
Looks like we need to have one all figured out soon...
Health Insurance---I have Blue Cross Blue Shield, but most of my colleagues have the insurance through SOMA(Student Osteopathic Medical Association) which is pretty affordable and covers you and your significant others, if any, pretty well. Blue cross blue shield costs me $145 monthly--individual rate. You can look at the SOMA insurance through their website...just google SOMA insurance.
Life insurance---there are hundreds/thousands of insurance companies out there that would love to have you. I have Ohio national life insurance (something like that)...i pay $110 annual.
hope this helps. Let me know if y'all got any more questions...
see some of u on student acceptance day...coming up soon
Has anyone called the vcom office lately ? and know how many seats left for the class of 2013? thanks much
well, students acceptance day is coming up in a week... i would assume by now that all seats are full...
however, not to discourage you, there will be some people withdrawing their seat comes the "change of mind" season, which is around April-July..."people got pulled of this waitlist and withdraw from this school" kinda deal...
if you make it on the top 10 waitlist, ur chances are good to be still accepted... but then again, dont quote me...i dont wanna get beaten up!
For those who are interested, it looks like we have 177 people in our class so far according to the viewbook, out of 190 total spots. There's also an unknown number of outstanding offers of acceptance. So if any of you are interviewing soon or haven't heard back from VCOM, I hope this helps your waiting process.
Hey what's up everyone...is anyone still planning on getting together the friday night before accepted students day? I got an e-mail about a "Mr. VCOM" event going on Friday night. What's everyone planning on doing?
Hey all - Mallory (^) and I will be at the Starbucks across from VT at 5pm on Friday. So, if you want to get together, come on out and we can figure out a plan then.
Sorry for no formal plans - we were told that there would be some, but didn't hear back yet.
At our Accepted Students Day event today, they announced that the class now has 185 students. Granted, there will still be some movement (as Gracie84 just posted), so don't give up if you've been waitlisted!
Really? At my interview on the 24th, I was told that there was still room.At our Accepted Students Day event today, they announced that the class now has 185 students. Granted, there will still be some movement (as Gracie84 just posted), so don't give up if you've been waitlisted!
I counted 177, too. I think a few more have turned in their deposits since that viewbook was published.
There might be if they're planning on a class of 190. I would guess that there's more than five people waiting to get in, which is why I mentioned the waitlist.
I wanted to let everyone that is still waiting for a decision to know that I withdrew my acceptance recently. So, there's another spot open for someone else. I hope an SDNer gets it!
This was a really hard decision to make because VCOM is awesome, but I found a school that fits me better. It was pretty sad, though, when I told Megan that I'm going to another school. Anyways, good luck to all of those still waiting!
may i ask where are you going? u dont have to answer but i would like to know which school have u picked over vcom.
good luck to you in your future endeavors
