I applied at Lipscomb last year and got wait listed, 2 of my prerequisite were not completed at the time. I applied again in may for this cycle and I didn't get an interview invite. I have noticed that many re- applicants from the last year were not even considered for an interview invites. Is it possible for a school to not consider re-applicants or look at their application?

I consider myself a good applicant:  I am a Respiratory Therapist at Vanderbilt Medical Center with many certificates such as ACLS, BLS, NRP, and ABG endorsement. I have a 3.8 GPA and hundreds of volunteering hours and 50 shadowing hours. 

why do you think I did not receive an interview invite?

Would anyone mind sharing their stats for those of you who received an interview for this cycle?  I am a senior undergrad at Lipscomb this year and trying to see how competitive of an applicant I will be for this next upcoming cycle. Thanks in advance!

Due to a recent acceptance, I just withdrew my application and cancelled my interview date. Hopefully this opens up an opportunity for one of you!
