I just got the e-mail too!!!!!  The woman on the phone just mentioned the letters, so glad to get an e-mail heads up.  I got in too :-D   

Now for the tough decisions ... LSUHSC is probably my top choice but I just wish they didn't start so soon!

Just got a rejection letter from LA Tech today.  I never got asked for an interview for LSUHSC, so I already know that's not looking good.  But, it's okay, I got 4 more schools to hear from!  congrats to those who got in!

I go to undergrad at UL and I believe they went out last year around the 15th. I have not heard any whispers around here.

Thank you!

I also applied to UL and haven't heard anything, but I saw on the admissions page, a girl already got her rejection letter the week after apps were due.

Honestly, I don't think that was the real reason.  If it really was the case, they would have told her, or at least would have contacted her several times before the due date if they had anything missing.  They emailed me several times when one of my recs hadn't arrived yet.

Did your email state a reason for rejection?

The reason was "Program no longer has openings"

I asked Dr. Heiman specifically, and she had the same response.

I go to Tech for undergrad and there was a decent amount of our students that were wait listed/rejected. Some of the people that were rejected were kind of shocking. I'm not really sure what they looked at when considering at applicants.

Seems like LATech had some odd standards this year.  Sorry to hear about that.  Good luck with everything else though!

LSU BR released their letters March 13, they typically accept 50/50 current undergrads and outsiders. LSUHSC also has released their acceptances, they accept low GRE

The "Low GRE" thing is very untrue.  They're minimum requirement is a 296, and not meeting that was the exact reason why I was rejected last year.

Hey! I heard back from LSU Baton Rouge today and got accepted! We have to respond by March 31. I am sort of freaking out because I have been wait listed to every other school I applied to. I am from SC so I will have to pay out of state tuition if I decide to go. Can anyone give me some reviews on this program??

I would say that they accept lower (296) GRE for applicants who are strong in other areas.  For the record, LSU Baton Rouge accepted those with lower GRE than LSUHSC did; they are both just looking for certain things in their applicants.

I know at least one person who just got an acceptance letter (via email) from UL just now.

I called UL and they told me they were not sending out acceptance letters until the end of the week and rejections until next week?

Sorry to hear that. In my mind "low" GRE = 296-299. I should've been more specific! This is very low compared to the  majority of schools in the country who atleast want 50th-55 percentile
