    I would think that would count but you should call them and make sure.

    Does anyone remember when Mid-Late September interviewees find out whether they got in here or not? :confused:

    i'm having trouble figuring out "why NYMC". Seems like "we make good doctors and stuff" isn't really that helpful on their website. I don't see how they differentiated themselves from any other medical school.

    I grew up in a home, less than a mile away from NYMC, and since I was a child I've dreamed of becoming a doctor and attending there, one thing I can tell you, Valhalla is a beautiful place, and a great place to live.

    Since I grew around that area as well why NYMC was easier because I could weave in personal experience with the hospital and stuff.

    for anyone who has already had an interview:

    how are they conducted? is it a panel of three? one-on-one? i also noted online that a fourth year medical student may also sit down and interview you as well. what should i expect?

    THANKS!!

    I just had a one-on-one interview (closed file), and I'm pretty sure it was the same for the rest of the interviewees that day. To my knowledge, none of us were interviewed by any medical students. Although, a fourth year medical student did sit down and speak to us about the curriculum. Hope that helps and best of luck to you!

    thanks golffanatic!

    what was the style of the interview? was it friendly? aggressive? did they ask you a lot of hypothetical ethical questions? or was it mainly about your experiences?

    I'm sure it varied from interview to interview but mine was very friendly and laid back. I did not really get any ethical questions or difficult questions in general. The questions mainly pertained to my experiences. Make sure you are able to answer the question why NYMC because it was my understanding that they look for students who really want to be there.

    so, why NYMC? Oh, I found an amazingly in-depth answer on their website, that is not in any way vague or generic:

    There is no single reason to study at New York Medical College&#8212;there are many. Our dedicated faculty, state-of the art laboratories, well funded researchers and innovative curriculum, coupled with our commitment to the underserved, are just a few of the many reasons students choose New York Medical College.

    That's pretty much what every school says, and what you should say at every interview. Just give it a slight spin from school to school and you're good to go.

    yeah but some schools site specific programs you can engage in; i just found it curious that they didn't really try to be more specific. but i found some usable information, so i should be good!
    why NYMC? because i don't want to go to the caribbean!

    Has this been other person's experience who interviewed here? It's good to hear the interview is more about why you want to go there and not focused on grilling you and ethics questions.

    How long have the interviews typically been?

    Mine was also laid back. I had one interview with a 4th year med student. Very focused on experiences, not a pressure interview at all. It probably lasted like 40 minutes or so? Would have gone longer if I didn't have to run over to catch up with the tour group. Don't sweat it, really. Just have a good answer for why you want to go there, review your amcas activities, you'll be fine.

    Mine was very laid back too; we were joking around some of the time! Mine went a bit long, but I think most of the other students were right around 30 min.

    Hi guys, new to the forum. I was just wait listed at New York Medical College and I have a couple questions I was hoping someone could answer.

    I know at some schools, being wait listed is pretty much a rejection, but I remember from my interview at NYMC that a lot of people are accepted off the wait list. Does anyone know around how many people are wait listed and what the chances are of being accepted off the list?

    Also, is there any chance of movement from the wait list before May? In the letter I got it says they review periodically, but do any acceptances come before then?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    they said they have lots of movement, but i believe it will be later on. they also said that the waitlist is unranked and that they like getting letters from students. furthermore, i'm sure numbers are taken into consderation when waitlisted, so if you have a 3.8 33 i would be inclined to say that you have a better chance of getting off than someone with lower stats. good luck.

    idk if this answers your question but they said they accept around 700 which includes people that get accepted and waitlisted than later accepted. The person at the interview said that there is a lot of movement off the waitlist and he did give an exact number of people on the waitlist.. i dont know the number off the top of my head

    I interviewed Oct. 5. They said it would take 8-10 weeks to hear back, and they certainly took their time getting back to me.

    So are we assuming that acceptance notifications are only coming out on Mondays? I say this because the only days people posted were the 23rd and the 30th. Also, an open question to those already accepted: What does your online status say after you received the email?

    I interviewed on September 21 and I still haven't heard anything from the school, neither email nor letter correspondence. What should I do, should I call them or email them to find out? It seems many people interviewed after me have already received the decisions.

    I think the guy who ran our interview session (James Demaio I think?) seemed open to being called if you've been waiting a long time. He said to call and ask to speak with him, and he will tell you your decision over the phone (even though he's apparently not supposed to, according to him).

    Thanks, I also heard him saying that, but he said to call him if I don't receive my decision by December 15th. I felt I am being left out from their computer system. First, they have to call me in order to schedule an interview, because, according to them, there was something wrong with their computer system. Anyone here who interviewed in September and still hasn't gotten decision in any form?
