    Help!! I have an interview at WVSOM on Dec 6th. It is a group interview and as I understand it, it is very laid back and you find out if you are accepted almost immediately. I called to reschedule because I do not want to get stuck paying a $2000 deposit if I get accepted elsewhere at a later time. However, they do not have any other group interviews available. It would have to be a one-on-one interview. I have 3 other interviews: LECOM-Erie Dec 16th (1st choice), DMU Jan. 12 (2nd choice) and LECOM-Bradenton Jan 6th.

    The woman at WVSOM said that those who are offered group interviews have VERY high chances of getting accepted. Should I take my chances and reschedule and miss out on group interview or keep it and have a chance of "donating" $2000 to WVSOM? :confused:

    take your chance...considering its not even in your top 2 choices..do the one-on-one...hopefully u'll ge into LECOM..although from what i have been reading..they sometimes let their students wait a bit before letting them know of their status post-interview.

    take the interview, WVSOM is the best.

    are you serious about attending WV if you are eventually accepted? if you are, then pay the deposit to ensure that you have seat somewhere.

    How do you know if you have a group or indiviudal interview. I just received an email with my interview date but no words saying if it's group or not?
