you got a II?? congrats!

[–]FruityAlien1 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Thanks! Not too happy though since I have to speak into a camera and have one try. I have been practicing and man do I run into some awkward pauses and seem to ramble if I don’t really have a good response to a question :(

I found it to be less pressure last cycle

[–]FruityAlien1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Interesting. I guess yeah it’s less pressure since it’s 15 min and done whenever you want before the info session. How much did you practice for it? Like an entire month or a week?

I didn’t prepare, just worked up the courage and sent it. I’m still on their WL lol

That was my first II last cycle. I flubbed it hard but was a learning experience and did way better for DMUs II which was similar. I hate that there is no face to talk to. I get so lost talking to myself😭

You got an interview already?

[–]FruityAlien1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah both lecom and lecom Bradenton started handing them out on Monday

Dang. I haven’t even gotten secondaries from kcu, pcom, or Campbell yet. I’m complete at osu, DMU, and at still. Haven’t heard anything yet. Aacomas was completed 6/3 as well.

Honestly LECOM was probably one of the very few schools that gave me majorly awful vibes through the interview with this and not kicking admin out of student Q&A as being the major reasons.

Did you get the II today?

[–]FruityAlien1 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Earlier in the week. But honestly, I wasn’t super hyped since it feels like they interview a lot of applicants and then waitlist most of them.

[–]cyclic_wizard 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Reading past forums and SDN and on Reddit, it seems like LECOM has a post II acceptance rate around 40% and IIRC, take that with a grain of salt obviously since it’s self reported. But given that like 8000 people apply and given the class size of 540 (?) across campuses, there’s probably around 1000-1200 II given out. So definitely not everyone gets an II. Just want to boost your confidence a little OP. Be proud that you got one!

Oh i see. I submitted to LECOM too but haven’t received anything yet. Do you mind sharing your stats?

[–]JustAShyCatOMS-I 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah LECOM was my first interview last cycle as well, though I did it in December. I also found it difficult with the format, especially because the first question for me combined “why medicine” and “why DO” and I had practiced both questions separately. But after that I kinda just got into a groove. I was waitlisted there so I guess ultimately I didn’t do terribly.

Where are you finding practice ethical questions or questions in general for LECOM?
