    Looking through SDN, it seems that LECOM-Erie is waitlisting people interested in PBL and are funneling them into LDP (Bummer). I really had my hopes in going to this school and doing PBL. Does anyone know what other schools offer PBL. Also, I just applied to the school (literally just today), is it likely that if I am accepted, I would have a shot at PBL?

    NYCOM's website states it as a "pilot program" but during my interview I asked about that. I was told that the website simply isn't updated and the program has been around for about 5 years and has been very successful (~98% board pass rate).

    LECOM at Seton Hill is also PBL; the first class will begin next fall.
    It is my understanding that there is some shifting in and out of pathways (especially PBL because of the size) during the months of January through July, since people are moving off the wait list, deciding on other schools, etc. So I imagine the chance is there if you continue your application.

    Thanks mooman. My concern is that if I decide to go somewhere else because I have a chance at PBL and find out later that had I waited, I could have gotten into PBL at LECOM-Erie.

    I emailed LECOM-Erie after my acceptance about the Seton Hill campus (all PBL) and they said there are still spots available there. I assume that you can pretty easily switch to that campus if you have been accepted into LDP at Erie.

    That's true, tditty. I found out the same thing.
